Music Reviews and Samples

Wrote legendary Pagan journal Green Egg:

“In Lady Isadora’s voice hear the singing of quartz bowl bells. In her heart feel the dedication of Witch and bard. Her voice slides waterlike from strong high places to splash into pools of evenly-grained alto note progressions, then carries us all willingly down storystreams of love, defiance, ethics, evolution... [Her albums] are a wonderful collection for Pagans, Witches, and writers. Her voice is an instrument of surpassing beauty with which she tells our tales and sings our souls.”

Additional review accolades for Lady Isadora include:

“...soaring flutelike exaltation... lushly beautiful melodies combine with words of power...”

“... don’t miss... sparkles with top professionalism... a voice that rivals Judy Collins’ for clarity and emotion.”
Circle Network News

“The Joni Mitchell of the Wicca* movement... powerful...”
– Website for “Psyche van het Folk,” Radio Centraal, Antwerp, Belgium
* Isadora greatly appreciates the praise, but notes that she herself uses only the term “Witchcraft”.

“I don’t normally review [albums]; however these are certainly worthy of an exception. I found the lyrics to these songs to range from amusing to quite moving... a beautiful voice... absolutely haunting (reminds me of a cross between Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell)...
