"Varied in its themes as it is delivered like a warm embrace, Sharon Goldman’s songwriting is unvarnished folk-pop. Every Trip Around the Sun prides itself on humanity, and it seems to be that it does so with a “nothing more, nothing less” attitude. Capturing the human condition in a bottle may sound like the sort of jargon that every marketer worth their mettle would try selling, but here, it isn’t snake oil. As she’s been doing since the early aughts, the New Jersey singer-songwriter is making music that taps into the compassion that all of us are capable of embodying." ~ Jonathan Frahm, For Folk's Sake
