Nostalgic-Bittersweet-Quirksome-Inara June 1 2005
By Fiendishly Bookish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Inara George is a surprise when you first hear her. I first heard a track of Inara's on KCRW when my partner and I were out in the car. We had just turned on the radio and were caught in the middle of the song, and looked at one another, "Who the heck was that?". We noted the time, and later looked up KCRW's playlist on their website to find out it was Inara George. At the time a CD was unavailable and no one seemed to know who she was.

Patience is definitely a virture, because we finally heard it announced that Inara would play Pioneertown Palace, relatively close to our home-we were estatic!

The show was a success and I was surprised yet again when listening to that long-sought after CD, how untampered with her voice sounds. This CD is highly recommended, Fools in Love is my favorite, an ironic and sweetly sentimental abyss that everyone falls into. Each song is a treat, slowly savored and you will find yourself playing a few over and over again. Inara George is faintly reminiscent of gentler times, with less angst ridden drive, but just as pure and meaningful as one would expect from a soft-spoken lyricist and musician such as she. You are strongly reminded of a mix of Imogen Heap and Harriet Wheeler.

A Gem! Sept. 20 2005
By K. Giese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I came upon Inara George at a Jackson Browne concert. He brought her out and she sang a few songs of his, and then he joined her in "A Day." I was very much impressed and came home with only the information that she was his god daughter and a last name. It was tough to find this obscure album. It is a gem! It is so much fun to play in the background or listen to in the car. I seem to find it on my playlist daily. "Fools in Love" is a lovely song, as with "A Day." Any track from this album is bound to soothe the aches and pains of the day.

All Rise for IG! June 23 2005
By L. H. Lohnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I discovered Merrick quite by accident when they opened a show for Cousteau. I was totally blown away and purchased both CD's right there from IG. Merrick certainly was not mainstream but over time they were getting some decent airplay and the local shows were getting more crowded. The music was a bit "outside" for many I suppose, but something changed. The last two times I saw them they were playing some new songs and I thought to myself "If these girls get a good producer and a label with some belief they could really take off" The tunes were almost pop songs although still contained the intricate melodies and vocal calisthenics that made them unique, they were really getting polished. Then they decided to call it a day. It's a shame that the tunes will never be released.

Inara George's "All Rise!" does not contain much of the Merrick quirkiness or more ethereal feel, but instead gives the listener a solid more straightforward folk/pop/chanteuse/jazz thing. With "All Rise!" Inara George has found the producer (Mike Andrews) and label (Everloving) that completely delivers her vision. Every song on this record shimmers with her beautiful voice, intricate melodies and often dark and sometimes brutal lyrics (see Turn Off/On which is as honest and cuts to the quick with the best of Elvis Costello or Graham Parsons).

Mood music for a change June 7 2005
By M. Mui - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Had gone to see the Cowboy Junkies and was pleasantly surprised by one Inara George. If I wasn't really listening I would have thought I was listening to Mazzy Star or Frente, but this has depths in different directions. Picked up the album immediately and haven't been disappointed yet - each song you can listen to for the melody or for the lyrics.

Most rise ***1/2stars Oct. 19 2005
By Stephen Doig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Inara George makes pop music, albeit pop music with twisty, inventive melodies and interesting song structures. All Rise is Inara's debut and though she's in fine voice throughout, some things work better on it than others.

'Fools Work' for instance, never really gets off the ground and whether by accident or design 'Turn On/Off' is much more turn-off than on. The lovely, dreamy 'No Poem' and 'What A Number' however, are the musical equivalent of being swept off your feet by a gentle wind and transported to a more beautiful place. Other tracks that have this bouyant, uplifting quality are 'Good To Me' and 'A Day' in which she duets with her godfather Jackson Browne.

The glimpses of brilliance on 'No Poem' and 'What A Number' in particular, suggest that Inara George has the necessary talent to be able to pull off a real masterpiece. All Rise is a decent effort and well worth investigating but this is not her masterpiece - Inara's best is yet to come.
