Nice review of my “In Another World” album in Germany’s Folker Magazine

Positive Review of Marjorie Cardwell's  "In Another World" album, in Germany's Folker Magazine, January 2013

Review of In Another World in Germany’s Folker Magazine

Brief but glowing review in Folker magazine

There’s a nice review of my album in Folker magazine out of Germany this month! It translates, roughly, as follows:

“A Northern Irish woman, now living in in Australia, Marjorie has a great voice, and starts this cathartic album with the soul-stirring, un-self-pitying “Hole in My Head”, in which she addresses her  brain tumor that was diagnosed in early 2012, before embarking on a thoroughly positive album full of energetic folk, pop and rock oriented songs. Wonderful.”

Don’t forget the album is available directly from us  as a CD or download through Bandcamp at www.marjoriecardwell.com – however I’ll let you in on a secret: my CD is currently (Jan 2013) on sale at CD Baby so for a limited time you can get it for a really good price there… http://bit.ly/mccdbaby

Of course, if you prefer, it’s also on iTunes, Amazon and a lot of other download sites as well.

Many thanks to Peter Holmstedt of Hemifrån for passing my album along to Folker magazine!

PS: The original review in German is: 

“Die Nordirin in Australien mit toller Stimme startet dieses kathartische Album mit dem anrührenden, keineswegs wehklagenden ‘Hole in My Head’, in dem sie ihren Anfang 2012 diagnostizierten Gehirntumor thematisiert, ehe sie dann ein durch und durch positives Album voller energiegeladener, musikalisch an Folkpop und -rock orientierten Songs startet. Bewundernswert.”

If you speak German and can help us with a smoother English translation we’d appreciate it!

 

 

Hemifran representing Marjorie and DC Cardwell in Europe & Scandinavia

Marjorie and I are very pleased to announce our new association with Hemifrån who will be promoting our music in Europe & Scandinavia.

Hemifrån come very highly recommended and they have represented a very wide range of artists, including some very well-known names such as Daniel Lanois, Dave Rawlings, Jackson Browne, Levon Helm, Wanda Jackson, Kasey Chambers, Indigo Girls, The Long Ryders, Jerry Douglas, Judy Collins… need I go on?!

Hemifran represent Marjorie and DC Cardwell

Despite the fact that we both come from Europe ourselves (Northern Ireland to be precise) this is our first serious push into that part of the world in this stage of our career and we’re very excited about it.

We’ve already been picking up some significant airplay and expect our exposure in various media to increase as time goes on.

About Hemifrån

Hemifrån is an independent A&R, promotion and marketing company based in Sweden and their cool motto is “Gut Music For All People” – so that suits us, as Marjorie and I like to listen to music that “gets you in the gut” and we try to make music that has the same effect. They promote all kinds of music including powerpop, singer-songwriter, heavy rock, blues, westcoast-pop, country, AOR, jazz, Americana, electronica and rock’n’roll, and again, we figure that works for us as we feel we have toes in several of those genres!
