From Joanna Mintzer, MA in Vermont:   “I am playing your 2 CDs over and over in the car and I wake up singing all the various sea ballads! I am enthralled with your singing, harmony and lyrics. pure genius and yet reminiscent of Peter Paul and Mary, whom I grew up on, minus one of them!

“Just listened to your new album, and it’s terrific. Congratulations! Another collection of finely crafted songs beautifully performed. Well done, you two!”


– From  listener and fan, Sue Templeton-Deschene:

“Kathleen, I listened to the new Naming the Twins CD this afternoon! Your CD was perfect for the road! I really enjoy the warmth and vibrance of this album; all the songs seem to fit together into a true album. Kudos to you and Robbie, and also Alex Buchanan for such a clear, crisp production in which every note resonates. (As someone with hearing loss, I’ve long been annoyed by muddy-sounding production quality.)”

Naming The Twins “Drifters & Dreamers” A Real Gem from Robbie Smith and Kathleen Glauser

Shelburne, NS – August 20, 2013 – The new release from Naming The Twins demonstrates a real growth from their 2010 release “Sweet Transitions.” That’s not surprising since Robbie Smith and Kathleen Glauser only began singing together in 2008. There is a real confidence in their new album that paints pictures with the words and music.

You can tell they spent a lot of time on nailing down the details of this release…

“Tall Ships” captures the depth of talent that helped out with the recording. We’re streaming it on our Soundcloud file.

Your new album is a showcase! What great songs, what great singing and playing

From Mary & Brian Stocks, LaHave, NS

Drifters and Dreamers –

We all are amidst the echos and haunts of maritime roots that are brought forward so comfortingly with Rob’s consummate musicianship and wordsmithing and the continued evolution of Kathleen’s harmonies. Thank you both!
