"Ronnda Cadle's music offers purity that is breath-taking. The sincerity of her expression leaves no room for anything but the essential. Though a very accomplished guitarist, there is an innocence to her music in which beauty, grace and open emotion are un-obscured by ego and unencumbered by gratuitous flourish. When you listen to Ronnda Cadle you believe her unconditionally."
