Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It's been said that a good songwriter comforts the disturbed, and disturbs the comfortable. Maura Kennedy does both with Parade of Echoes, a thirteen song soliloquy to the light and dark sides of pure pop. She delivers power chords and hooks in spades, boldly busting out of any boundaries that genre descriptions might impose. It's pop crafted with serious power tools, Her lyrics don't shrink from obsession, depression, and recession of the heart, and lest you fear a gloom-fest, be encouraged; it's all cast in the brilliant sheen of her carillon harmonies and bell-like lead vocals. Under the rich vocal tapestry is a rock-solid instrumental foundation that will have you slam dancing the subway with your earbuds blasting; Renaissance-woman Maura (she's also a busy actress in NY and one half of The Kennedys) set herself a year-long task; to write a new song, and record a master version, every month, resulting in Parade of Echoes, an audio journal of her inner life, a sort of emotional weather report, archived for the edification of pop rockers, progressive acoustic types, and her loyal worldwide cult of fans who love a deep lyric welded to a great melody.


On her first solo venture, Ms. Kennedy unleashes her better pop angels and her most tormenting demons on Parade of Echoes, a near-Spectorian symphony of ebullient/anguished ruminations on any True Lover's worst fears, denials and fervent hopes. --Jim Musser, Iowa City Press Citizen

Over the last fifteen years we've come to expect only Maura Kennedy's best. Parade of Echoes surpasses those great extraordinary solo debut. --Mike Jurkovic, F.A.M.E. (Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange)

Format: Audio CD
I set the "Recently Added" section of iTunes on shuffle and sat down to read the paper. Suddenly, this amazing wall of sound made me walk back to the computer, wondering "What was that?" It was Maura Kennedy's "New Way to Live," sounding like Belly, Tonya Donnelly's mid-80s band, only better.

Maura new solo cd, "Parade of Echoes" is aptly named. The echoes include elements of Buddy Holly, Fairport Convention, U2, Phil Spector's girl groups from the fifties, Disappear Fear, and, of course, heavy doses of the Beatles. There are even echoes of early Kennedys' songs, especially when Pete Kennedy's tasteful guitar solos fill the spaces between Maura's haunting, romantic, and mystical lyrics. The production is exceptional, with a very clean sound, and always a perfect balance between vocals and instruments. It is, clearly, a labor of love,

This is, by far, my favorite album of the year. It gets better each time I hear it.
