"Pleasurably eclectic and smoothly virtuosic, “Singing Wood” — the debut CD by Seattle Marimba Quartet — is a true listening delight. SMQ tackles classical, jazz and Latin repertoire with equal aplomb."
- Michael Upchurch - Seattle Times
"The flute and marimba had such a warm and welcoming sound, I kept hearing people comment on how excellent the music was."
​​- Kayleigh and Robert, Wedding Ceremony and Reception, commenting on the Evergreen Duo
