“Throughout “On the Side of Love,” Grace both celebrates the art of collaboration and cuts a confident figure. The natural, beautiful quaver in her voice gives listeners a sense of the miles she’s traveled, sights she’s seen and love she’s experienced — love worth fighting to preserve and perpetuate. Each song sounds present-tense yet stretches back to a rich tradition, placing Grace and all those within earshot in the context of community and history’s bend.” –Aarik Danielsen, Columbia Daily Tribune

“This second CD from sisters Leela and Ellie Grace is a smart and harmonious set…with a bright sound and an uplifting outlook. Their blend of complementary mountain-clear voices recalls the sound of groups like the Wailin’ Jennies and Uncle Earl, and the arrangements featuring mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and guitar also place them firmly in the modern American roots realm.” — Dirty Linen
