"Sol Paradise" CD Reviews

Mona Rodriquez, "Assorted Women Show", WDIY 88.1 FM

"Maggie Spike has found a very enjoyable, very entertaining way to bring a world of music styles and genres to Any-town USA. Good music from good people, take the journey for yourself to discover one of PA's musical treasures"

Cheryl Prashker, Percussionist & President of NERFA (Northeast Regional Folk Alliance)

"Yes, I did indeed listen...what a great CD!! You put a lot of work into it and it has a wonderful sound. I of course am partial to percussion!! (ha ha). It's a great work and I hope others get to hear it all over!!"

Kevin Wesley Williams, Producer/Engineer/Mixer (Phila./Nashville)

"Accordions are so tragic. The opening track "To Be True To You" of the new Maggie Spike record "SOL PARADISE" makes me long to be in Italy. Very haunting and romantic. This collection of songs will definitely take the listener on a brilliant and enjoyable musical journey. The musicianship and production are flawless. The vocal and musical arrangements are interesting and well planned. This record is a beautiful blend of folk, pop, jazz and a taste of the islands. Some of the stand out tracks are: "To Be True To You", "Sweet Surrender", "Your Home Town" and "The Right Place". Peggy and Eric, congratulations on an amazing record."

Joey Welz, CEO, Canadian American Records
