........What people are saying...
"This album kicks off in high style with a horn section. Elyett’s excellent voice is enlivened by solid harmonies. The songs tend toward philosophical ruminations on life. For me, the highlight is the finale, ‘The Lord’s Prayer,’ in which the singer cuts loose with some particularly good, passionate vocalizing."
David F. Dawes
"Listening to Barb's nicely crafted music is like sitting down with a big mug of chicken soup when you have a cold. The sincere lyrics are drawn together by beautiful piano and Barb's warmly expressive voice. Her heart for music and inspiring people is unmistakable in these personal songs..."
"Once in a while there comes across my desk an artist that is what I would consider a "stand out". Barb Elyett is one of those. Her project "The Simple Side" is a CD that you must listen to.
Not only is every track beautiful, filled with her gift of voice, but well produced, and spirit-filled. Elyett is a Canadian, but has the potential of being a force in the American market with the right promotion efforts. Her stand out vocals and writing are powerful and effective and need to be heard.
I encourage you to request Barb Elyett. You will not be disappointed."
" 'The Simple Side' by Barb Elyett is one of those CD's that's filled with special music that after you hear it you'll say 'Thank You Lord.' Thank you for giving me the chance to not only open my ears but also my heart and soul to the simple wonders of Your way.' "
"When I first put Barb Elyett's CD into the CD player I knew it was inspired by the Holy Spirit! The Simple Side is an album that everyone can enjoy!"
Pastor Larry James II
“The Simple Side” has a warm feeling infused with spirit and encouragement."
The Simple Side is a mixture of soft rock, gospel and contemporary music. Barb has a great voice and the band is very tight on the album.
One of my favorites is the acoustic, Thorns and Fragrant Roses. It has a great heart to it. The lyrics are deep and introspective. The song has a great message, one of faith and adoration.
" When I'm searching for music that I know will put me in a good frame of mind, I pull out your CD and I find in minutes your music, especially the words, bring me back, well...to the simple side of life. Life can be so busy and complicated, but your music addresses and sates the anxiety of our world with God's simple truths. I find myself still singing your songs in my head hours and days after listening to your CD and I find comfort in your words."
"Your CD, The Simple Side, is turning into my "mini-escape" from the pressing day-to-day commitments of everyday life. I love how every song on the CD brings me back to the most important thing in life - Christ. Thank you so much for this wonderful CD!"
"Thank you for this wonderful CD! Though I've never personally possessed any artistic ability, I absolutely love and am inspired by people that do have what I lack! The honesty, sincerity and pure artistry that is in every speck of your music is just gorgeous! I love it!"
