Reviews for HALF DAY ROAD

The Half Day Road reviews begin their arrival!

Daniel Neely of The Irish Echo, March 18, 2019, “But the thing that’s most striking about this album is the sheer virtuosity of the musicianship.  Carroll plays with rare drive and sensitivity and has a partner in Charron who is well able to match her energy.  And there are some ear-popping moments that stand out above and beyond some already very impressive music.  I think, for example, of the quick cuts and the freedom she seems to have as she moves up the fingerboard on “The Bird” and the fire she wields in “Save the Ham” as she swoops in and out of the groove.  It’s just breathtaking.”
