    Chansons Irisées Media Quotes, Marc Lalonde

    «Chansons Irisées est effectivement un arc-en-ciel de mélodies magnifiques pour une voix envoûtante qu’est celle de Mary Barry… Chansons Irisées est ce genre d’album que l’on écoute d’un trait, comme on se laisserait emporter par le vent et la mer à bord d’un voilier»

    Journal de Québec, Jean Beauchesne

    “Elle chante avec la même innocence que Jane Gainsbourg, la perversité en moins, et Marie Laforêt. Mais elle arrive à communiquer l’émotion qui s’impose”

    Red Eye Tonight Media Quotes


    “This voice is not rural! This voice is urban!! Plus, the group and Mary perform their craft with a natural musical symbiosis that is second to none. As a jazz singer, Mary possesses a unique ability to deliver her art to us with discipline and frivolity without sensationalism and waste. …a single, clear, and vibrant voice that is I feel is singular in its feeling, spontaneity, and emotion. Definitely a keeper!”

    Peterborough This Week

    “This third independent CD release from two-time winner at the Music Newfoundland 2007 Awards provides more of what has made the singer/songwriter a favourite not only here in Canada but in the U.S. and France as well…. her backing musicians provide just the right mood for Barry’s immense talent.”
