'New found Sounds' by Aoife Barry in The Irish Times:
"Hartman’s sound is self-assured, with a beautiful touch of jazz"
Le Cool Dublin by Hugh Torpey:
"A cutting silhouette of a voice, Ríona Sally Hartman trips through songs with an ease of grace found in the best of offbeat female artists. Eschewing the pop route like the plethora of other young female artists around, Ríona builds her songs like stories, and performs them like poetry. The music is stripped down but still fills the background effortlessly, echoing around as if in the forest of a Midsummer's Night Dream. With hints of Laura Marling in her approach to song making, the lyrics come to the fore while the melody remains deceptively simple and strong. Launching her debut CD, 'Sealegs', this is the last chance to see her on the current tour.
A collection of raw little gems, Sealegs is a wonderfully crafted pop record with jazz and classical sensibilities – well worth a gander into the city"
