"For those sickened or wrongfully spoiled on common, industry blends of Irish folk/rock, McKeown is absolutely blowing away any misconceived notion or preconceptions of what this genre has come to define. Her brand of folk/rock music is progressive, including instrumentation and language of traditional Irish music, but it is wonderfully experimental in arrangements that feature trumpets, electric guitar and sparse electronic sampling - and further blending genres like jazz and blues.

While The Chanting House provides a fantastically eclectic chamber rock background to frame her songs within, McKeown's soulful and evocative vocals drive and navigate the music - fiercely passionate words whispered, crooned and screamed to evoke the Irish spirits.... McKeown's voice and lyrics are captivating and truly spellbinding with rich, descriptive imagery from a powerful, feminine perspective."
