“Classic Torch Songs from Irish Chanteuse “McCreagh’s voice is mellow and velvety, rather than in-your-face, and she effortlessly performs timeless standards such as ‘The Days of Wine and Roses’, ‘Come Rain or Come Shine’ and ‘Trav’lin’ Light’.”  Hot Press (Colm O’Hare) – March 13th 2013

“Like a consummate actor, Wicklow singer Carmel McCreagh gives every lyric its due, so it’s no surprise she’s chosen the songs of lyricist Johnny Mercer for her second album. Mercer’s sophisticated lyrics adorn some of the greatest “standards” in the American Song Book, and some of the best-known are given a dusting down here: ‘The Days of Wine and Roses’, Come Rain or Come Shine’ and ‘I Thought About You’, not to mention the gorgeous title track. Produced by McCreagh’s partner Fiachra Trench (the arranger behind ‘Fairytale of New York’ and much else) and featuring a roll call of established talents on the Dublin music scene, including guitarist Jimmy Smyth, saxophonists Michael Buckley and Keith Donald, flautist Brian Dunning and drummer Desi Reynolds, Skylark is balm for the ears and a worthy addition to the songbook canon.”  The Irish Times (Cormac Larkin) – March 22nd 2013

“Carmel’s intimate and warm approach does justice to an interesting mix of familiar and lesser-known Johnny Mercer songs on her Skylark album.” The Jazz Rag (Jim Simpson) – Spring 2013
