"review of Inside Stories"

Overall this album is much more polished as Sheehan seems much more confident in her song writing….Listening to and owning this album is highly recommended’

"Inside Stories - Trad & Now"

‘Marni Sheehan’s ‘Lonesome Blues’….a perfectly constructed blues piece. Marni can write a great story-song, such as the outlaws on the run tale of ‘True Hearts’. The Irish fiddle and mandolin laced ‘Rambling Rose & the Gardener of Love’ is also a credit to Marni’.

"Critters & Specimens - Folk Alliance"

“Marni has gathered a rich and varied combination of musicians and instruments to support her nostalgically fresh collection of original songs...........Sheehan’s jugband and blues-rock background is fully represented in the layers behind the humour, candour, depth and simplicity to be found in her poignant lyrics”
Folk Alliance Newsletter Sep 2004 .

"Critters & Specimens - Artstreams"

“Marni Sheehan is a real writer. Her songs are all substantial, they’re real stories not just cute ideas spun out over three minutes”

"Critters & Specimens - Best Female Musicians"

“Marni finds the soul in all the tunes on the release. She lifts the listener up and gently rocks them..............blends the folk tradition with a hint of country and a pop sensibility that make the tracks accessible to both folk purists and those who are more interested in pop music”.

Marni Jim & Tony each have a rock 'n' roll past and have worked together since 2002 in the legendary Croakers blues band. Marni has released 2 cds since that time and the trio have done the rounds of festivals & clubs to promote these. Now they are including songs from all members and the repertoire has broadened. A wide range of styles (folk, blues, country, unplugged rock, originals) and a variety of instrumentation make this act a winner.
