"I have been listening to Cascadia tonight. Its amazing!  Your guitar playing is so fantastic, tasteful, beautiful,and unique. I love your choice of chord progressions.

One of the 25 Essential Echoes CD's for 2001

"Such an appealing collection of tunes on a great guitar for a noble cause. Conceptually, there is a lot of growth evident on this CD - like concentric growth rings of a tree."

"Fingerstyle guitar has been flourishing and few have mastered its intricacies, delicate melodies and meticulous moods like Tim Farrell."
Echoes, heard on over 170 radios from Public Rad io International

"Tim Farrell plays a very relaxed style six string acoustic guitar and his melodies lay on the ear easily. Farrell doesn't play fast or loud in order to impress the listener with his dexterity; he just lets the tunes speak for themselves. A celebratory and ebullient spirit is present yet overall, if you just want to relax with a good hearted, gentle vibe, this fits."
Dan Liss, NAV Magazine

Tim Farrell's intricate techniques are heard to full effect on "SkyDancer". Farrell stands apart from the numerous acoustic guitar slingers out there. The title track and "Joyride To Tranquility" resonate with soaring, memorable melody lines that go beyond technique."SkyDancer" signals the arrival of a guitarist to be heard."

Billboard * Critic's Choice *

"Fingerstyle guitarist Tim Farrell manages to coax melodies out of his instrument in a seemingly effortless manner.
Cleanly picked notes hang in the air just long enough to catch in the memory and invite the voice to start humming along.
The title cut, "Joyride To Tranquility" and "On A Winter's Night" are wonderful and they make you wish they were a little longer. "So Long ... And Thanks For All The Fish" has a sort of whimsical humor."
