" - Annette Warner"

Ronnda delivers a completely genuine and addicting collection of 16 acoustic instrumental tunes, with just a couple of those tracks boasting some incredible vocals, here and there, that really left me in a very special mood. I LOVE her expressive and “Soundscape” style and this music is the kind that stays around forever and never gets old. The atmospheric tranquility it releases is immediately appreciated for those that enjoy thoughtful and journey inspired instrumental music. The guitar work is rich as butter and melodically, it’s a masterpiece. The entire production is in very good taste. AWESOME! - - Annette Warner

"RJ Lannan ~ New Age Reporter"

“(After) - an enchanting album that will enthrall you with beauty, melody and passion. I cannot remember when I heard an album that has such a sweet magical blending of instrumentation. Everybody does everything right on this CD.”
--RJ Lannan, New Age Reporter - New Age Reporter

"Don McCollister - two time GRAMMY winning engineer"

"When I listen to Ronnda Cadle's music I can close my eyes and I am transported. Her music has that magical ability to paint a picture without saying a word."
--Don McCollister, Two Time Grammy Award Winning Producer - Nickel and Dime Studios

"Eddie Owen - Founder, Eddie's Attic"

“There are rare occasions when I have the opportunity to prepare dinner for my bride, open a nice bottle of wine, build a warm fire and truly enjoy life! It takes a very special record to round out these events. Ronnda Cadle has made that type of record! I hope you get the chance to see for yourself!”

"Madalyn Sklar ~ CEO"

This CD is worth listening to over and over. Yeah, it's that good! My favorite song, hands down, is "Rosemary's Dawn".

"Sue Ennis ~ cowriter with Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart"

“Ronnda is an amazing technician on the guitar. She coaxes a full-voiced sound out of the instrument and the result is a confident, clear tone. She’s a melodic, hooky writer. Her songs stay with me for days.” - Sue Ennis

"Sounds of Silence - Blog Feature June 2010"

Words—overrated? We’re used to hearing them in music, but that doesn’t mean they’re necessary (think of how great Ke$ha’s songs would be without them). Ronnda Cadle, a guitarist from Washington, certainly doesn’t need them. Her instrumental compositions manage to be expressive without any verbal assistance. With simple, finger-style picking; soft, patted percussion; sonorous violins and cellos her music communicates the full spectrum of emotions. There’s moody melancholia (“After”), wistful retrospection (“Letting Go”), benevolence (“Rosemary’s Dawn”) and joy (“The River Runs”). Of course, the translation depends on the listener. Cadle gently coaxes skeins of melodies from her instrument, weaving them together to create rich, emotive tapestries. Though great as soothing background music, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t listen carefully to what the arrangements are saying. Just because the music is wordless, doesn’t mean it isn’t eloquent. ~ Kate B - Ourstage - Kate B

"Lee Valentine Smith ~ Creative Loafing - Atlanta"

“A delightfully restrained, yet subtly subversive folk-classic hybrid, Cadle’s music is the soundtrack to a million dreams at once. A cinematic treat.”
-- Lee Valentine Smith, Creative Loafing, Atlanta

"Sarah Bettens ~ K's Choice"

"…the kind of music that makes you want to sit back and close your eyes"
--Sarah Bettens, K's Choice

"Acoutic Coffee ~ Edenton, NC"

“It's sometimes hard to believe all that music is coming from one guitar.”
--Anita Andersen, Acoustic Coffee, Edenton, NC

"William Ackerman ~ Windham Hill Records Founder and Producer"

Ronnda Cadle’s music offers purity that is breathtaking. The sincerity of her expression leaves no room for anything but the essential.
Though a very accomplished guitarist, there is an innocence to her music in which beauty, grace and open emotion are un-obscured by ego and unencumbered by gratuitous flourish.
When you listen to Ronnda Cadle you believe her unconditionally.

As a solo guitar instrumentalist, Ronnda Cadle is known for the melodic hooks she coaxes from her guitar. With over 20 years experience playing her original compositions before live audiences across the U.S., this musician from the Seattle area has developed a devoted fan base. She has shared the stage with many other well-known musicians including Sarah Bettens, Al Petteway, Patty Larkin, John Jorgenson and 2003 American Music Award Winner, Moe Loughran. Ronnda's style fuses heartfelt emotional content with masterful guitar work. She perfected her craft while listening to guitarists whom she considers her greatest mentors - Nancy Wilson of Heart, Caroline Aiken, and Emily Saliers of Indigo Girls. Ronnda says, "I wouldn't be the player I am today if it were not for these strong and amazing women. I hope to bring my own voice to the generations of women musicians to follow."
