“I once saw Kirsten Maxwell take the stage in a raucous bar. The patrons were there to drink, not listen. She began a delicate ballad, and by the third line, she had them in the palm of her hand. Kirsten is a strikingly special performer.” Paul Shaffer

“She opens her mouth and birds fly out.” Vance Gilbert

"When Kirsten Maxwell first emerged several years ago, the folk world was captivated by her gorgeous voice and songwriting ability - and inevitably curious to see how this exciting young talent would develop. Kirsten's new EP offers some clues, as she spreads her wings to embrace not only folk, but Americana, pop, and indie influences. The journey has just begun!" - John Platt WFUV

“If I could sing like that, I’d give up the violin.” - Chris McKhool ‘Sultans of String’

“I never thought I’d ever hear a voice as angelic and mesmerizing as I did when I first started listening to Joan Baez some 50 years ago, but then I heard the voice, the songs and melodies of Kirsten Maxwell.” - Jon Stein, host of Hootenanny Café on WTBQ.
