”I really enjoyed the mood, her songs, and her wonderful voice.”

[From a feature article entitled “Hot Guitarist Alert! Libby Kirkpatrick”]
“‘The biggest reason for Kirkpatrick’s ability to win over crowds, though, has to be her soothing, melted-
chocolate singing voice, her jangly, flowing guitar riffs and her captivating songs... simultaneously
channel the spirits of Joni Mitchell and Andy Summers and you'll probably get the right vibe.
‘I try to create voicings that match my mood, not the other way around,’ notes Kirkpatrick,
demonstrating her point with the challenging but entrancing fingerstyle intro to ‘Wait’. The main
melodic hook comes on beat one of bar 1 in the form of an alluring 4-th finger slide. But as
tricky as this melancholy, introspective riff is to play, it wasn’t written out of a need to impress
people or play blazing riffs. Nor for that matter, is it even something that would be categorized as
‘lead guitar.’ It simply serves the song.’"
-– Jude Gold, Guitar Player Magazine
"Libby Kirkpatrick uses her intricate, melodic guitar playing as a tool to help expand her bewitching
singing and wide vocal range... Her self-released debut ‘Songs From The Ether’ speaks effortlessly
to any romantic... As a whole, the album has an honest, sorehearted tone. Recommended!"
