Passages Reviews

“Your new CD is wonderful! I’ve listened to it twice all the way through. It’s well balanced…the production is great, and your lyrics are very thoughtful and provocative.  The art work and graphics are very clean and classy. Outstanding!” – Adair Correll, Founder of the Northern Michigan Songwriters in the Round

With her clean vocal lines and self-assured acoustic guitar work, Barbara Faith Jordan’s set shows off her thoughtful songwriting and narrative sensitivity, especially on songs like “There’s a Friend,” and “See What You Made Me Do.” A few of the songs here are slightly darker in tone, which makes for a nice change – especially “Loose Ends,” which features detailed characters, some interesting minor chords, and a shift into falsetto towards the end of the song that’s reminiscent of Tori Amos.   – Kristi Kates Music Reviewer, Northern Express Weekly

“With a sensitive-yet-powerful voice, Traverse City’s Barbara Faith Jordan plays engaging singer-songwriter material about real people and her own life experiences…Her folk-, pop- and country-hued tunes get a boost from stellar musicians Joe Ayoub, Dave Proulx, Jeff Moehle and others.” John Sinkevics, Entertainment Editor, Grand Rapids Press

“Barbara Faith Jordan’s new record, Passages, is one of those rare independent CD’s that came to our public radio station with great songs to play on much of our diverse programming. We feature a wide range of music including jazz, folk, blues, roots, rock, and more.  Her beautiful voice and excellent musicianship she and her backing players possess, comes through on every track.  As a DJ, it’s always a treat to be able to air music you enjoy playing and listening to!”Sandy Blumenfeld, WNMC 90.7 FM, Traverse City

“Barbara Faith Jordan crafts heartfelt songs of sensitivity and depth, delivered with a beautiful voice and a confident guitar.” – Robert Downes, Managing Editor, Northern Express Weekly

“This CD from Barbara Faith Jordan, originating from Michigan, with a number of local session bandsmen, is a particularly pleasant surprise to listen to – even more so if you know that my preference does not go out specifically to the female voice. ” – Johan Schoenmakers, Dutch music review blogger at
