"Ye Media Moguls"

What classical music media moguls have to say about Owain Phyfe and the New World Renaissance Band.

Lisa Lynne
Windham Hill
Recording Artist
"I have enjoyed every one of The New World Renaissance Band albums over many years." (11/1/2000)
Martin F. Kohn
Theater Critic
"This is mellow music, mostly about love.... it also makes an ideal vaccine against road rage; new vehicles should come with an Phyfe recording as standard equipment." (09/19/99)

Cynthia Canty
Detroit, MI
"I can assure you on those nights when sad and tragic stories leave me drained and demoralized, Owain Phyfe's music is one of the finest cures imaginable. Takes you right out of the 20th Century and into the 16th." (Detroit Free Press, 05/30/96)

Walt Haake
Sergeantsville, NJ
"My appreciation of Owain Phyfe and the NWRB is such that it inspired me to create a radio program, the Mists of Avalon. The program can be heard every Saturday evening and on-demand. Most programs feature a track by the NWRB or Cantiga, as well as related music by many other performers."

David Blum
Kent State Univ., OH
"...I heard this voice, it was clear, it was distinct, it had a style all its own, I looked to my left and saw Owain Phyfe singing songs of love and songs from the Renaissance Period. I was totally caught off guard. Not only is he a distinct singer but the band itself has a style all of its own."

Davis Gloff
Birmingham, MI
"I can't speak for the other guys on the air at WYUR, but I have played maestro Phyfe's stuff several times. As a matter of fact, I sometimes have to remind myself not to play him every blessed time I'm on. Since I do fill ins, it's not that terribly often, but his work is so good, I play him as often as I dare." (Now heard on ClassicalMusicDetroit.COM)

Gypsy Flores
Santa Cruz, CA
"Owain Phyfe has to possess one of the most compelling voices around -- his voice is sweet and expert without sounding overly trained... I was immediately enchanted"

Maggie Boleyn
The Tudor Times"The Renaissance speaks and sings, and it's voice is Owain Phyfe."
