"Sharon Goldman has done something quite remarkable, merging the cadences of ancient Hebrew liturgy with a contemporary feminist perspective on modern Jewish and American life. Despite its historic roots, her work is easily accessible to anyone who appreciates intelligent, poetic, musically compelling folk. If you don’t need to be Jewish to love Levy’s rye bread, you don’t need to be a rabbi to love Sharon Goldman’s original, timely, soulful music," -- Si Kahn
"In 'Kol Isha (A Woman’s Voice),' my friend Sharon Goldman has done what the best songwriters do: created beautiful, memorable songs, sprung from a deep awareness of the connection between her personal experience and the broader sweep of history. The songs seamlessly weave together first-person narrative, sacred allegory, and Hebrew refrains - it’s a gripping, powerful and sometimes surprising mix. Sharon’s experience as a Jewish woman is the starting point for a moving exploration of universal questions about love, family, memory, and belonging. This project has also unlocked something extra in Sharon’s already lovely singing voice, an even greater expressiveness and richness. In this divided world, everyone should hear and be touched by the heart and soul of 'Kol Isha.' -- Pat Wictor, Brother Sun
