"In the space between art and persona there is magic. Marya Stark lives there. Drawing from influences as diverse as Classical, Broadway, Indie-Pop, Storytelling and Folk, Marya crafts a sound that is wholly original. As a multi-instrumentalist and multi-media enchantress, she creates the way she breathes; without choice or hesitation. She is a carrier of myth, mystery, and medicine songs with which she embarks to create a ceremony of the human experience, taking her audience on lucid journey's through the caverns of the soul. An award winning songwriter and vocal maverick, she is a mentor in the art of voice and song craft. She is mused by kindness, nuance, synchronicity, soul remembrance, and is a life-long chaser waterfalls."
"She opened her lips... and children suddenly became quiet, guests took a deep breath and forgot their names (and everything else outside of the present moment), heartbreak revealed its sweet side, fairies smiled somewhere, and portals opened to celestial realms. I will never forget that first time I heard the music of Marya Stark. She is a divine siren and wise woman, who's songs spark awakening, love, prayer, peace, magic, myth, dreams, and everything beautiful about human life."
- E. Bast
“If I could give both Marya Stark and her album, The Garden, a 10 out of 4 I would. By far one of the best albums I’ve heard in 2012, this project made my hair stand up in utter amazement at how musically, vocally, and sonically incredible The Garden is. If I had a million dollars to invest in an artist, Marya would get my full financial support.”

“Marya Stark is a force of nature, who wakes the house and puts their hearts on fire."
- Sirena Andrea, Yoniverse Monologues
"She is raw, real, shameless, authentic, passionate, and truly has her pulse synced to the heartbeat of the divine mother. Her music reflects these potent qualities, it pierces through you, beyond the veil of illusions into all the places and space that you may not know how to feel, hear, and or heal. "

“Marya Stark’s voice feels as if she were reaching her hands out toward you as if to say, “Come, I’ll show you things you have never seen. I’ll take care of you on the journey.” If we were to look at the lines that map Marya’s palms, we would definitely see an old soul. That voice. It is as pure as a newborn’s breath and yet it sounds like history – the cries of joy, the whispers of intimacy and the whimpers of sadness of a thousand lifetimes.”
– Ignite Magazine
"A deep meditation on timeless ancient wisdom to salve our current times. The heartfelt passion in her message strikes a chord, and shines through. There is profound wisdom and knowledge to be found in the lyrics of this new record, while the overall vibe is uplifting, relaxing, and inspiring. She manages to strike a beautiful balance, delivering potent transmissions without coming off as too preachy, or taking too much focus away from the music.”

“The Garden” really does feel like the place for everything. The album just doesn’t sit still and each song has moments where you sit back and think “wow”. Marya Stark’s album genuinely impresses and impales your heart. Mesmerising from start to end. I want everyone to hear her.”

"Marya takes singing to a whole different dimension, showcasing vocal control unheard by any of today's top major label singers. If you're a vocalist and you want to learn how to use your voice as an instrument, listen to Marya and study the vocal inflections, tones and the way she flows effortlessly from note to note, and octave to octave."
