“Powerful. Beautiful. Harmonic. Soulful. Real.”

-Julie Gammack, former Des Moines Register columnist

“Carol Montag’s vocals have always been strong and pure. Her newest CD, ‘Marigolds,’ beautifully blends the purity of voice found on her previous releases with solid, varied, yet simple instrumental accompaniment. As she breathes immense depth into lyrics that employ vivid imagery and heartfelt confessionals, she seems to be singing to and from her own soul. In some songs she mourns lost opportunities; in others she searches for meaning in everyday occurrences. This longing is shaded with optimism, taking the listener on an enjoyable thought-provoking journey.”

    Hi Carol,
    It’s me wanting to buy one of your CD’s. Didn’t do it at the Marion Arts Council Coffee House like I should have. You were great. We could have listened to you for a few more hours. Let me know what is available please. Thanks,
    Dixie Estrem

    Yup! I made that flower! It took about 20 miuntes. Phew, I’m exhausted. I just started the book and like it so far. It’s actually funnier than I thought it would be I was concerned it would be a cheesy read as it was featured on the good old Oprah show. And I just loathe the schmaltzy reads. So far, no schmaltz.
