Wise Innocence Reviews

“The album’s title track, ‘Wise Innocence,’ is one of my favorites so far, not only because it’s a slight diversion from Mathewson’s traditional folksy sound, but also for its power. This is a song that will urge you to sway your hips, clap your hands, and pay attention to the words, that will lift you up and if not point you in the direction of a better future, at least help you feel the promise that such a future exists.” Kat Szmit, Barnstable Patriot

“There has been much research about the healing power of music. Tones, vibrations, and words all carry energy that affect our mind-body. Alicia’s voice is a positive force that can help transform us in profound ways. A few minutes of listening and a positive shift is inevitable.”
Amy B. Scher, author and energy therapist for emotional healing

“Alicia’s warm, rich voice and positive messages will enlighten, enliven, and uplift listeners. With a lush, resonant tonality infused with her unique, powerful, soothing energy, Alicia’s voice soars, transporting listeners into peace. Reminiscent of the Indigo Girls, the folk-oriented tracks make you yearn for a summer road trip with the top down and a summer breeze through your hair. Yoga teachers, students, and meditators will especially appreciate the tradition Sanskrit chants, made more accessible with gentle, inviting guitar melodies. On the mat or off, an utterly delightful offering from a singer, songwriter, musician with a powerfully positive message.” 
Sara DiVello, best-selling, award-winning author of Where in the OM Am I? One Woman’s Journey from Corporate World to the Yoga Mat, and nationally known yoga teacher

“Alicia’s music comes from her heart, a unique beat from her that others can connect to on many levels.”
Derek O’Neill, Master Teacher & Humanitarian

“Alicia’s performance was engaging, her lyrics genuine,  sensitive, and powerful. A treasure in our acoustic music world. We are looking forward to our next show with Alicia.”
Karie Miller, First Encounter Music Series

“As a mind-body teacher / practitioner, I cannot wait to share this with students and clients. I feel like it is a perfect tool to integrate into a daily practice of connecting to your SELF. I highly recommend Isn’t It Amazing for yoga teachers, healers, mind-body and somatic practitioners – along with everyone who wants to feel good and be well. And I can’t thank Alicia Mathewson enough for sharing her heart with the world.”
J. Edwards

“Pure joyous energy! Great music for people and the planet. Her performances at house chanting circles are transformational. Local shows in small intimate settings are delightful. Large concert setting, accompanied by Fugan Dineen- percussionist extraordinaire, was powerful and enjoyed by a multigenerational audience.  Alicia is a gifted healer, a bringer of joy and peace, who invites the healing power of sound out of those who gather around her.”
deer Sullivan, Youth Ministry Director, First Parish Brewster

Isn’t It Amazing? Reviews

“To listen to Alicia’s album is to agree to have your heart cracked open and your mind freed to a higher level of consciousness. Her words come through clearly, words about serving, loving self, and living meaningful lives. It isn’t just an album, it’s a meditation and a healing. As a yoga instructor, I would use several of these tracks in my classes, offering up beautiful music and wisdom to my students. Thank you Alicia for offering your heart up to the world through this beautiful album. Namaste.”
Andrea S., California

“If you were at the Grand RE-opening of Power Yoga Of Cape Cod-you would’ve heard the LIVE version of “May I Be At Peace”by Alicia Mathewson-and OH MAN it would’ve blown you away!!! If you haven’t heard this track yet-it will melt your heart and bring tears to your eyes. True love and healing all over the planet. Send it out to everyone.”
Jill Abraham, owner Power Yoga of Cape Cod

“As a local “groupie” I’ve had the chance to listen to Alicia almost every week over the past 6 months. Alicia’s music is filled with love & Light! Her Soul shines through every word, every note. On her new CD, I can hear Alicia smiling (beaming) as she sings her truth, my truth, our truth. Yes, it’s Amazing! I love all of the tracks but 2 reach out and truly speak to me – Sing for Free and Fighting the Good Fight. Thank you, Alicia, for the gift of your music.”
