"a sterling, silvery vocal presence and a gift for supple, emotional ornamentation....Lynch's talent is a diamond...gorgeous voice and sense of purpose, supported by (a) superb ensemble" --Richard Harrington, The Washington Post
"one of Nashville's most quietly important performers...gentle, nearly evangelical fervor" --The Daily News, Los Angeles, CA
"timeless" --Mojo, London
"Claire has complimented many of my records with her beautiful harmonies, but she has one of the sweetest, purest and best lead voices in the music business today. I'm so happy to see and hear her shine on her own. I love this CD and I love Claire. She's a great gal." --Dolly Parton
