Maireid Sullivan

"One of the aspects that comes across clearly when listening to the entire collection of her music (on Dancer ) is how talented and original Mairéid is as a songwriter. Enchanting and fascinating songs....How thrilled I was to hear them so perfectly sung here. I play this CD softly as I'm falling into sleep...then I know myself to be loved eternally."
Maureen Williams, Keltic Fringe, Pennsylvania

"She can sound sultry...sweet...playful...wistful...or etheric...the listener can feel why some songs still have the power to pull on your heartstrings hundreds of years after they were first sung...."
Dan Liss, Aquarius Magazine, Georgia

"First there was Enya, then Loreena McKennit, and now Mairéid Sullivan brings it on home with her debut solo CD....Sullivan bravely and with delicate sensitivity presents her contemporary Celtic pop-fusion originals alongside fresh arrangements of traditional Celtic repertoire. With the poise of an elder and the delight of a maiden, this sparkling singer mesmerizes us."
GH, Napra Review, Washington

"Singer/Songwriter Mairéid Sullivan spreads her light to the world through the medium of Celtic Music. In her first album, Dancer , she blends a combination of traditional and original tunes in a seamless flow....The lyrics are infused with a Celtic spirit and the universal philosophies of love and freedom. At a time of re-emerging Celtic culture, we are reminded that "the roots of history and memory are buried deep in song." She sings with a voice filled with passion, mystery and wisdom. She sings of creating a better world, shaping our tomorrow. Reaching for the music of the spheres, with nature as an anchor, she reminds us that life is a dance and we are the dancer."
Kevin Maxwell - Music Manager, The Bodhi Tree Bookstore, Los Angeles

"Dancer , produced by the redoubtable Donal Lunny, adroitly balances tunes ancient and modern, filling the new with past cadences and the old with contemporary cues...a formidable ensemble that moves easily between folk contemporary and classical genres...irresistible...enchanting."
Mike Daly - The AGE, (Melbourne) Australia

"Yet another remarkable Australian-made record is Dancer by Mairéid Sullivan...the musicians include some of Australia's best....But it's Mairéid Sullivan who takes center stage, with one of those gloriously sweet voices that reminds you of Enya until you realize that Sullivan doesn't need fleets of multi-track recorders to get her effects....To achieve that extra touch of greatness Dancer makes full use of the accompanying musicians....Congratulations to everybody who contributed to Dancer.
Bruce Gillespie - The Melburnian

"Her originals make her something different. Sullivan happily admits a pop sensibility, so her songs have a lighter touch...a contemporary side with an acceptance, even an affection for an urban life. Sullivan...manages to cross some musically fascist boundaries....It is definitely music of sincerity and quality."
Ross Clelland - Drum Media, (Sydney) Australia

"There is something hypnotic about this disc. Perhaps it's my Celtic ancestry....Music that dances."
Kim Lockwood - Herald Sun, (Melbourne) Australia
