This is Sheri Kling at her most pure and simple...'On 'Passions & Prodigals,' [Kling] wraps her rich, dusky alto around hymns, folk songs and Van Morrison's 'Moondance' and several originals...' (Shane Harrison, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 2005) * * * Sheri Kling is an accomplished singer/songwriter, guitarist and long-time spiritual sojourner whose music is built on rich vocals and dynamic guitar and resonates with a certain organic authenticity through compositions that are heart-rooted and spirit-seeking.

Reviews: * Indie-Music.com 'It's impossible to feel anything but good while listening to Sheri Kling's new release 'Let It Unfold;'' * FolkWax.com: 'Transcendently well done...Sheri has certainly convinced me with this spiritual album that her talent as a songwriter and singer are undeniable and glorious.' * Bradenton (FL) Herald: 'Kling's songs are witty, real and poignant. Kling's voice - a clear, strong instrument of beauty - brims with the kind of lived-in experience that immediately makes one lean forward and feel a connection... I've never been so wowed by an unsigned artist as I have by Sheri Kling and her 'Let it Unfold' release.' 'I have been a big Sheri Kling fan for more than a decade and was delighted to present her as the featured performer at Moonsongs Coffeehouse several times during the four years we were in operation. Sheri's lyrics are as rich as her striking contralto and as full of energy as her dynamic guitar playing. Whenever Sheri performs, she captures the audience immediately with her uplifting songs and engaging personality. Whether she is singing of her gratitude for a gift received long ago ('I Heard Colors'), newly awakened insight ('Thunder and Lightning'), or the hope that we all will find deeper meaning in our working lives ('Working With Beauty'), Sheri's music inspires as well as entertains. It is always a joy to listen to her!' ~ Moonsongs Coffeehouse, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Gwinnett, Lawrenceville, GA.
