“This is a brilliantly constructed, soulful, and cleverly tender effort by a songwriter and musician who is in such complete command of her gifts that it’s almost scary…” Tom Jurek-All Music Guide

Susan Werner “Classics”
“The album’s mix is surprising. It includes songs by Marvin Gaye, the Byrds, Bob Marley, Cat Stevens, the Animals and America. On five cuts, excerpts from Bach, Vivaldi, Chopin, Satie and Rodrigo meld with the pop. The songs are reinvented, the chamber-music approach dramatic yet not overstated. It’s a fresh, sumptuous sound, and Werner’s vocals have rarely sounded more intimate.” Daniel Gewertz Boston Herald

McKenna’s new CD is masterfully produced by Crit Harmon and she is joined by a who’s who of the best in singer-songwriters including Ellis Paul, Richard Shindell, Jennifer Kimball, Meghan Toohey and Kris Delmhorst”. -Folk Web

Edie Carey “Another Kind of Fire”
“..As always, Carey’s lyrics shine through, though never so much as to overshadow the often-gorgeous melodies and instrumentation underneath. The album is impressively polished, though never over-produced, with solid instrumentation supporting her beautiful voice throughout the work.”-Glide Magazine

“Crit is an old-time producer in that he doesn’t rely on technology to solve emotional problems with performances. He gets the wildlife, gets the performer doing it for real, and retouches it as little as possible.” Susan Werner/recording artist

“Crit is the Shit”. Martin Sexton/recording artist

“It’s been great to work with someone who can navigate so easily between the creative and the technical aspects of songwriting…. all this while remaining true to the emotion of the song and sensitive to the artist’s intentions. “

Meg Hutchinson/recording artist

“As a custom music tunesmith, and songwriter in general, Crit has an uncanny talent for taking an abstract idea and giving it a complete and natural musical identity. This craft is like breathing to him. Crit has creative genius seldom found, and at the same time he understands deadlines and how to work with a clients creative input.”
