"Mary Coppin...she displays ample humor to go with the requisite confessionals. Wisely, producer Jame Donnellan keeps the arrangements sparse and focused on Coppin's earthy voice and clever lyrics. The yearning opener, 'Would You Could You,' and the spirited 'This Time' are particularly engaging...", Billboard Magazine

"Mary Coppin's music is an elixir for the soul. With her smart lyrics about love and loss, and a never ending eye for irony, Coppin's music moves you to tears and reflection. Buy her CD!!!!", Helen Slater, actress/singer/songwriter.
"Mary Coppin's voice has a magical quality, somewhere between Natalie Merchant and The Kinleys that cuts through the ordinary and can literally hush a noisy club. Her Pop/rock/folk songs take you on a journey from evocative questions to joyful answers", Chris Boardman, film composer, Mel Gibson's "Payback".
