"The Indie magazine in Asheville, North Carolina 2/2007"

Adrienne Nightingale, a young Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, gives new twists on a familiar middle American girl sweetness that makes cynics listen... listen softly. Her self-produced, self-engineered, self-mastered CD, “Love and Light” (2006), offers sensitive hooks to diva blandness and melodic depth to silly little pop songs that clog the airlanes on these days of Britneys, Parises, Lindsays, and tragically comical “American Idol” dreamers and carpetbaggers. An Asheville visitor last summer, Ms Nightingale reminds me – especially in the haunting “Can’t Say No” and the ethereal “Offerings” – of the starry-eyed, unadulterated Judy Collins of the “Wildflowers” and “Whales and Nightingales” moments. Although she evokes ghostly Emily Dickinson spirit lurking nearby (“Blood on my Hands”), Adrienne isn’t reaching for goth bombast or young-woman-on-the-verge melodrama which almost always become the rule than the exception in these times of singer-songwriter theatrics... Simply, “Love and Light” is old-fashioned folk – raw and untamed, earnest and truthful.
However, the real pleasure in Adrienne Nightingale is watching her live and in person. The ferocious warmth of her doing a live cover of “Under The Boardwalk” and the synergetic allure of a duet or two with friend and one-time touring partner Malcolm Rollick are inadvertently absent in this CD. We hear shades of that understated magic in “Offerings,” which amply showcased her vocal range, and “Exhale,” as backstopped by Karla Harby’s charming flute... but, all in all, spending moments with “Love and Light” only makes us ache with longing for the real, live Muse.
“Love and Light”—despite its minimalist grace and profound songwriting—only gives us a piece of Adrienne Nightingale’s heart. But that could be enough for now... Meantime, let’s all wait to re-experience her presence. A second CD or an intimate concert should be in our midst soonest. - Pasckie Pascua

"Twin Cities Daily PLANET, MN"

Adrienne Nightingale is one gifted singer-songsmith, as her work schedule readily attests... Nightingale’s music has a lilting, haunting quality that lingers with you long after she’s finished singing. Perfect stuff for Saturday mornings in autumn. When you play the album Love and Light machine, just as soon as it stops playing, you will want to start the disc all over again. - Dwight Hobbes
