“Clark’s voice is every bit as light and dancing as Mitchell’s, but her softer-‐edged high notes gave the songs a soul that drew me in. Clark’s openness and happiness on the stage is pure delight, the joy and empathy she has in and for Mitchell’s work coming out in every note. It is Clark’s shimmering personality that brings all of that beauty to life.”
– Meg Currell – Edge Media Network
