"AMG Expert Review"

The leading tracks, "Campfire Light" and "Steady On," flaunt everything that makes this group so good: great vocals, splendid instrumental work, and a nice choice of material. Molly Kurvink's voice carries an abundance of emotion, whether singing about lost love in "I Wish It Would Rain," or about an environmental concern in "Those Fatal Lights.
It is this mixture of several good singers that allow for the beautiful intertwining of voices on songs like "Dans le Nord Canadien." Kurvink's bass playing and John Adames' percussion give this rich acoustic music a steady underpinning while Rick Fines and John Switzer add flourishes of slide and electric guitar here and there.

All the material, whether original or drawn from Canadian songwriters like Ian Tamblyn, works together to make Spirit & Stone an organic whole. For those unfamiliar with Tamarack's brand of Canadian folk, this album is a good place to begin one's acquaintance. -Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr. -AMG Expert Review, summer 2001 - -Ronnie D.

"Welland ON"

Kurvink in particular has a seductive voice that can capture the innocence of a child or etch rough lines on copper..."

"Spring 2001"

Kurvink's bass and clear singing give Tamarack the grounded, round the campfire home feel I've always enjoyed about this group. No pretenses. No fluff. Nothing ostentatious or unnecessary. Spirit and Stone has all the usual Tamarack strengths, good writing, and able musicians having fun."

Bio

when you see molly, you don’t forget her. when you hear her sing and play, you change. she is a powerhouse on stage. molly distills emotion with the textures of her voice, the stark honesty of her lyrics and a honed musical craftsmanship. if you haven’t seen her, then her voice will have touched you with her own “maynard’s big front porch” or other tamarack, james gordon, or ian tamblyn songs on the radio. she has released six albums with tamarack and shared the stage and cd tracks with ian tamblyn, jeff bird (cowboy junkies) james gordon, rita chiarelli, melanie doane and countless other canadian artists. touring extensively in canada, the us and great britain, molly has been an inspiration to women leaving behind a trail of budding female bass players where ever she goes.
on this latest release, with 6.lb head, molly brings out her acoustic guitar and a suitcase of songs to fuse a long career of folk music with her motown roots, shaking up the cocktail with a dash of pop and r&b. molly still likes kickin’ it with the kids and has evan gordon (juno nom. constantines and royal city) sitting in the big producers chair. her backing band, six lb. head (harri palm, stu peterson, al hosack and jeff english) reaches way back to the seventy's punk scene in toronto (johnny and the g-rays, michael jordanna and the poles) and moves forward to take a sampling from almost every musical wave since.
