Press Quotes

PRAISE FOR 'BRIGHTER IN THE DARK':

"Mouths of Babes could never have predicted how necessary this album is in a post-Trump world. The album title is fitting. We need music that shows people struggling against social expectations, that reminds us that we all have the resilience we need to make it through." No Depression

9 stars out of 10 "An eclectic arsenal of songs, showcasing their knack for fusing blues, folk, and soul with poetic lyrics [and] great choruses that are oh-so-easily stuck in your head. The guitar work is excellent, from the twinkly intros of tracks such as 'Black Tea, Red Wine' and the darker tones of tracks such as 'Brighter In The Dark'...an incredibly versatile record. One of my new favourite listens.” Thinking Lyrically

“'The Red Carpet' opens with a thumping percussion and subtle strings, a gorgeous, sneaking intro leading to sweet, simple vibrato singing...Next, powerful harmony busts onto the scene as Ingrid and Ty share their soulful soprano and cool alto respectively. During the hook that doubles as a quick love story, constant instrumentation fills the empty spaces with shaking jingles and beating electric rhythms. Together, the duo create a catchy ballad full of tender melody, sweeping arrangements, and dreamy lyrics.” —Elmore Magazine

"'Brighter in the Dark' combines their love of romance, storytelling, and vocal harmonies in an mix of ballads, smoky blues, and dances. Friends and expert musicians including members of Girlyman and Coyote Grace, Birds of Chicago, Mai Bloomfield (Jason Mraz), and Tania Elizabeth (Avett Brothers) were brought in to sessions at Cotati, California’s Prairie Sun Studios to provide instrumentation including pedal steel, hammond organ, piano, and strings. The result is a warm groove that perfectly builds off a single guitar line...into a full-bodied self-assured conclusion.” She Shreds Mag

"[Mouths of Babes'] recordings and live appearances have won passionate praise from across the continent.” The Voice Magazine


PRAISE FOR MOUTHS OF BABES:

“If I was forced to categorize it, I’d call it modern folk. It’s powerful, romantic, and giddy. And the two are insanely infectious together onstage, like a musical and a personal love fest all at once.”  Huffington Post

"Hands down the best new music I've heard in years. It's damn near perfect. The instrumental performances, the arrangements, the production, and OMG the songwriting and singing. The opening tune 'Thing with Feathers' gave me goosebumps. Twice. This is the kind of music that makes you glad to be alive." —Michael Mullane, Cafe Veritas

"This pair of road warriors sounds refreshingly new and breathes new life into a seemingly overcrowded genre. Those who enjoy acoustic music rich in passion and fervor would be wise to check [them] out." –Submerge Mag

“The songs they write and perform together fuse blues, folk, and soul, and the depth of emotion found in their lyrics is reminiscent of all that’s moving about [music].” —MTV.com

"[Ty and Ingrid] offer unique counterpoints to one another. The laid back Tylan, nattily dressed in a tie and crisp suit jacket, has a rich, lovely alto. Elizabeth, clad in a sultry pink satin mini-dress, is a sassy chanteuse with a lilting soprano. Trading jokes and sharing elegant harmonies, the two women displayed an intuitive professional bond." Chicago Tribune

"The poignant honesty that [Ty] brings to her tunes gives them an emotional intensity that’s as bracing as it is moving. She asks the unanswerable questions that plague the end of relationships, and while she doesn’t have answers, the questioning provides its own kind of solace." Relix Magazine

“The fiery redheaded bassist [Ingrid Elizabeth]...is the unabashed, unapologetic woman who isn't afraid to yell it all from the rooftops.” Curve Magazine

"Go see this band–and prepare to fall in love! Ty Greenstein and Ingrid Elizabeth...have an absolutely mesmerizing kismet together, and individually are both accomplished musicians and singer songwriters. They played two sets for our sold out crowd, and showed us versatile, fun-loving, moving, accessible and simply beautiful songwriting. Mouths of Babes deliver, with voices that touch every note with beauty and harmonies that pull you in to the music even deeper.  We are beyond thrilled to have hosted these two and can't wait to have them back!" —North End Concert Series

"[Ty and Ingrid] harmonize perfectly...[their] songs are emotional and have a personality all their own, [and they] gave me goose bumps for not only being so beautifully written, but because of the powerful messages. As a fan of both of these ladies' individual bands, I was not surprised that this project is also quite a success.." —Jerseyaudible.com

“Ty’s practice of extending metaphors out toward a precipice keeps an unpredictable edge to [her] songs. Most writers would stop at the easy close. Ty jumps, leaving much to imagination, to powerful effect. Ty’s expressive alto brings quiet energy to her introspective ballads, nursing a negotiation of life from pain to acceptance, if not peace.” Americana Gazette

“[Mouths of Babes'] soothing, thoughtful lyrics paint a vivid picture of life and love.” —Examiner.com

"Mouths of Babes brought terrific harmonies, literate, sensitive and humorous lyrics together with musicianship (it was only two of them but between them there was an harmonica, upright bass, a percussive cube, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and some percussion that Ty played with her feet)...Ingrid has a light and fun feeling, dressing in frilly dresses and plucking her bass; Ty is a little more serious...[one of her songs] was so beautiful, it just broke my heart, and that of the audience." —Ohyoureamoviecriticnow Blog
