Press Clipping

MOIRA SMILEY & VOCO/Laughter Out of Tears: What do you want me to do, lie to you and say Smiley isn't an art chick? I will tell you this, she does a fine job of finding the dividing line between creative and weird and manages to keep coming down on the right side of the line. Creating a choir out of people all over the world sending her mp3s of their contribution to the whole you have in front of you now, she has the smarts to make it work right. If you've ever dug chanting, the hippie side of new age, high tech folk, deep world music etc etc etc, this is a natch for you. Nascent suburban divorcees will dig this for yoga as well. There's something wonderfully wild about this that makes it compelling even if any of those descriptors don't do it for you. All this and somehow she works a Woody Guthrie classic into the mix that doesn‘t sound like any version you‘ve ever heard of it before. Do yourself a favor, you've got to hear it to believe it. Wild stuff that really grabs your attention and doesn't let go.
