What People are Saying

“one of the best debut albums ever released”

“Sullivan, “…” is a Virginian who sings bluesy country music in a voice that sometimes has the tremulous intensity of Edith Piaf. Right, that is a strange combination, but out of it Sullivan produces a sound that is both distinctive and ingratiating. [she] makes songs mean something as well as sound terrific.”

People Magazine

“wonderfully distinctive yet flexible voice”

“Say what you will about the current state of country music, there are still those commercially groomed Nashville tracks that can grab you by the ears. When they pop up on the radio, you listen, without guilt. Maura Sullivan’s debut album, “Out of the Blue,” is packed with such songs. “
