“Love Momma! Been dancing around the garden outside my studio on a glorious sunny afternoon in Scotland.” – The Music Machine Scotland, Mark Waters
“These ladies have put together a collection of songs that are true and dear to their hearts, songs full of real life stories and life lessons learned. Songs of love for their family and songs that will bring a smile to your face! Enjoy!”– Hulda Quebe (of “The Quebe Sisters”)
“Smith Sisters have always given us sweet harmony and often sentimental songs. “Face To Face” is a new offering from them giving waltz style ‘country comfort’ to anyone who has lost a family member. Its gentle styling, clean believable vocals, musicianship and delivery all add to a great song.” – Brian Clough, CMA International Broadcaster of the Year 2009 – The American Connection Country Music Show (UK)
“In a song like Face to Face by the Smith Sisters, Father’s Day is illustrated in love with beautiful original lyrics, tight delivery, and the band’s classic styled Country Music musicianship. Their late Dad’s lingering love is united with them (Kelli & Wendi) through well crafted verses, harmony and sincerity within this recording. The lucid dream scenario in this song of seeing their father and holding his hand, gives us who are listening the assurance that they will all be together again in the next life. “Face to Face” by the Smith Sisters is a country song that could perhaps easily be licensed for an A-lister like Emmy Lou Harris or Dolly Parton.” Grade: A+ – Steve Cool Beans Pullara, GRAMMY® Recipient Producer, Twice Nominated and Multi-Award Winning Recording Artist & Producer
