“Your very lovely CD ‘Blue Moonlight’... I have your CD playing and it is so nice to receive a record where every track can be played, it makes programming a real pleasure.”
- Danny Watson, 2MAX FM91.3 Narrabri, NSW Australia

“your voice is so gentle and your songs so warm that listening to you is like taking a bubble bath!”
- Carey Creed, Wammie winning Singer/Songwriter

“I have been listening to your new cd for a couple of days, and I must  say that I am just enchanted by its haunting melodies, the quality of  your clear voice, and the perfect accompaniment of these splendid  musicians. When any artist presents me with 11songs, I expect that one or two of the songs will be "duds," but I have listened to this thing  over and over, and though I have my favorites, each song is great."
- Allen the Perfessor Rubnitzz,
Folk Club of Reston/Herndon patron


Songs inspired by Other Places,
Other Times

Whether it’s a new “traditional” Folk song, an Irish ballad that could be centuries old, or a classic heartbreak Country song, Loralyn’s clear voice and evocative songwriting transport you to other places, other times.

In these original songs, maple trees wear lipstick, golden songs are sung on uncharted shores, the Northern Lights dance for the dead, and sweat is champagne skin. Let paper angels carry pain away and gypsy stars take you along, while the trains sound more lonesome in this blue moonlight.

Accompanying Loralyn on her debut release with their own expressive playing are:
Jon Carroll (Mary Chapin Carpenter Band, Starland Vocal Band) on piano,
Fred Lieder (Lisa Moscatiello) on cello,
Dave Van Allen (Last Train Home) on pedal steel, Robert Spates on violin, David Kitchen, and other wonderful DC area musicians.

Produced by multiple Wammie winning producer, Marco Delmar, these are songs that explore desire, loss, and hope.
