NOTES
What has marked the work of Ramona Silver up to this point has been her vivid songcraft and her obvious need to do things her way with imagination and style. Silver steers clear of the paint-by-numbers rock acts...a collection of tunes that rely on her colorful vocals, calliope keyboards, and delicious hooks. It's a supremely savvy effort.

She sounds like a sisterly version of Jonathan Richman in her oblique street-simple yet street-smart lyrics that posit such philosophical puzzles as "Being's just a reaction to everything we can't control." -- The Boston Globe

From Aimee Mann to Jennifer Trynin to Mary Lou Lord, the next in line is Ramona Silver. She's one of the best young songwriters in any genre that Boston has produced...wit, style, substance, with intelligent lyrics, smart meldodies and muscle. Undoubtedly, Silver's a major talent.-- Billboard Magazine

There are a lot of great female artists coming out of New England right now, but few come close to Ramona Silver. Silver and her band are truly charming performers and songwriters, and Ultrasound is the album that finally captures what this act is all about.
