This beautiful debut duo recording was released in 2003, a result of a lifetime (over 20 years!) of making music!  Produced by Pete Sutherland, this CD features five originals, four traditional songs/tunes, and four covers from other great folk songwriters.  Joined by many of the east coast's finest musicians, Leela and Ellie find a soaring sound that is full of the heart and energy they have always been known for!

FULL REVIEW.

“Leela and Ellie Grace rush in as a breath of fresh air to folk music, creating a musically infectious CD full of great songs, thrilling harmonies and convincing performance.” – Rich Warren, host of The Midnight Special

"I expected it would be good, but it really exceeded any expectation I might have had. The arrangements are perfect, the production elegant, and the harmonies so rich they moved me deeply." -- Steve Jerrett, Host of "The Sunday Morning Coffeehouse" on KOPN, Columbia, MO

"I am really speechless.  And breathless for that matter. I have listened to your CD at least 10 times since yesterday and it honestly brings tears to my eyes.  The professionalism, the mixing, the studio musicians . . . geez it's just so TIGHT!  The photography is beautiful, the design of the CD (I especially like the photo on the CD itself).  But mostly, I love it because IT TOUCHES MY HEART and I want to thank you for that.  I still cry every time I hear In My Name.  I can really hear the passion in your voices and that is so cool. . . .Thank you for making this record, for putting words to the feelings we all share, and for writing/singing/ and performing songs that enrich the lives of all who hear them."  -- Leigh Anne Lockhart, host of "World Woman" on KOPN, owner of Main Squeeze Natural Foods Cafe
