"This collection of songs for mezzo and guitar is simply delicious; the deep oak of Jessica Bowers’ lower range and the lush honey of her higher range mix well with the steady and sensitive guitar playing of Oren Fader"
-American Record Guide

The Duo's new recording, "Between Us All, featuring music written for them,
"I was very pleased to be sent this exquisite recording of new music for voice and guitar with new compositions by American composers. The musical language and writing for guitar and voice is excellent throughout. With great ensemble performances, intricate and musical guitar work, and soaring vocals, this is a very exciting release."
