Letters from the Jalopy
KSENIA Say it: 'Sane-ya' Ksenia Mack is her own woman, and she makes her own highly individual music. She entertains with an honest, emotional glow. Marilyn Rea Beyer Music Director, WUMB Radio Ksenia Mack's 'Letters from the Jalopy' is an artfully produced collection of beautiful and thoughtful songs with captivating melodies, sung expertly with intensity and at times whimsy. Catie Curtis Ksenia Mack is one of the most creative, imaginative songwriters I have encountered. Her songs take you on journeys to new worlds. The music is fresh, the melodies surprising and satisfying. Each song is a complete and unique experience, delivered by a voice that can caress as well as deliver a powerful punch of emotion. Definitely one of my favorite singer/songwriters.
