"She's what we call in the biz a 'wicked' guitar player and a stellar composer . . . I read a few reviews of her stuff and the word soundtrack keeps coming up. You'll know why when you hear her. It's fantastic, layered, lush, and evocative music. For this critic, it's a big deal to have such a visceral reaction to something without lyrics . . . Sylvia doesn't need them. She turns your ear with the language of her guitar and the compositions themselves."
—Amanda Putz, CBC Radio
