"The emotional spectrum Curtin covers over

the course of nine songs makes it impossible

to pigeonhole Or So It Seemed as any particular

kind of record. At times it’s angry and at times

it’s anxious, but it’s also content and hopeful.

It’s a full portrait of a human being: nuanced,

complex, and contradictory. "

AXS  -  "Music fans who want to discover a truly independent

artist should take a look at Sara Curtin's video for "Wellish

Home," and enjoy the work of a performer who is delivering

great music without any of the noise."

Medium  -  "...while most artists tackling the issues make sure

you know they’re tackling the issues from beginning to end,

Curtin’s approach musically and lyrically takes you away from

the front lines, so to speak, allowing the listener to reflect in a

different way."

AudioFemme  -  "Sara Curtin’s music is pretty darn dreamy.

Her voice creates a tapestry of delicate sound. Half of

Washington D.C.’s The Sweater Set, Curtin’s solo effort takes

that precious quality and gives it a little edge."

The Deli Magazine  -  "...lovely, hypnotic voice that'll certainly entrance you into exploring more of her music... Her latest album, Michigan Lilium, is a masterpiece of smart lyrics and alluring music and was recorded in her very own home studio."


Glide Magazine  -  "Visionary singer-songwriter"  -  "Sweet Dreams" official music video PREMIER

" video for the haunting dreampop track 'Sweet Dreams', which in a neat twist, involves baking a cake. If there’s one thing indie rock needs, it’s more cake."  -  "V D A Y" TRACK PREMIER

"...romantic groove, gossamer weight of the melody, and libidinous lyrical invitations..."

What people said about the "SUMMER" music video:


WAMU 88.5 BANDWIDTH:  "Summer,” a slow and sultry guitar-driven ballad that shares more with Sade or Sharon Van Etten                                                 than D.C.’s long folk tradition."


BRIGHTEST YOUNG THINGS:  "One of D.C.'s finest."
