Darien - Nu Soul Magazine

There are no low points on this album. It’s polished yet not overproduced. Thoughtful lyrics about love and life combined with serious music, truly make this 15 track offering a gift from the heart. This really is ‘grown-folks’ music at its best.

Darien - Soul Interviews

So it's a bold move when a young R&B singer sets out to cut an album of all-new material in front of a live theater audience. ---Aaron Jentzen, Pittsburgh City Paper >>read full review

It's hard to believe that Margot B. was once on the outside looking in ... at anything. But when she attended Chartiers Valley High School, before transferring to Pittsburgh's Creative and Performing Arts school in the 10th grade, she felt out of place.---Rege Behe, Tribune Review
