- Sing Out!


"There is real eloquence here.......a gifted songwriter poised at the threshold of a loftier position in the ranks of American singer-songwriters" - Ralph DiGennaro


"From the first note to the last, James O'Malley's play on words and guitar are polished, playful and perfectly blended. Kick back and get cozy."

- Eleanor Chapman


"When it comes to post-9/11 songs, I think my favorite is still James O'Malley's There's No Place That I'd Rather Be. Its simple eloquence continues to ring true."

- John Platt

"Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange"

"It seemed like every time O'Malley played, after releasing "I'm Ready", he would have a memorable new song to go along with the favorites. Those new songs now make up his extraordinary second album, "If Only In My Dreams." - FAME

"Acoustic Planet Erin Radio -- CHES 101.5 FM)"

"I'm a sucker for a good story song and this album has that in spades. The quality of production is superb with a clarity of sound that captured me from the start. Great vocals backed by superior instrumentation and all in all a wonderful 12 track package."
- Steve Clark
