I am super excited that R J of the Zone Music Reporter has chosen Heartwood as one of his top 10 picks for 2009! Yea! Plus he wrote a very beautiful paragraph about the album (on top of his awesome review), which can be found right here.
I am also going to include it below because I am THAT excited ~grin~
"This Canadian singer/songwriter took the Celtic center stage in 2009 and she deserves every accolade given. Her original Celtic recording Heartwood is poignant and engaging. Her story songs and warm voice never fail to please. Sora used every trick in the book including string ensemble, background drones and soaring vocals. I liked every cut on the album. She set the bar in 2009 and more Celtic artist should take heed. Best cuts include Heartwood, Eurydice and The Birch's Lament." -R J Lannan
