“Thirty-five-year-old Mary Halvorson’s guitar playing can be challenging and at times even confrontational, but it is never conventional. A fixture in avant-garde and improvisational music circles, the New York City-based guitarist is just as likely to pick out intricate, harmonically and melodically complex lines of stunning beauty as she is to unleash a violent spray of atonal, harshly-distorted six-string noise. And she does it all with an impressive array of musicians — over the past dozen years, Halvorson has appeared on more than 70 albums, working as a bandleader, an ensemble member and a guest artist — and in a wide range of styles.” – Rolling Stone
