THE NEW YORK TIMES ~ "Fervent and heartfelt"
The duo's songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near. "Peace, Salaam, Shalom" is sung around the world and has been called the anthem of the anti-war movement. "If I Give Your Name" won Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the band's music has been featured on NPR's "All Things Considered", Pacifica's "Democracy Now!" and "The Thom Hartman Show".
PETE SEEGER: "The powers that be can control the media but it's hard to stop a good song... Pat's songs will be sung well into the 22nd century.
Emma's Revolution's latest recording, "Revolutions Per Minute" creates an electrifying soundscapeof their characteristically "rousing and soulful" songs of social conscience, in settings from intimate acoustic to full-on funk.
IOWA CITY PRESS-CITIZEN: "With gorgeous close harmonies and unsinkable tunefulness, Emma's Revolution (the Emma is Goldman) is a classic, globetrotting folk duo comprised of activist singer/songwriters Sandy O and Pat Humphries. Their music is progressive, socially-conscious and shot-through with intelligence and cutting humor... Newest disc 'Revolutions Per Minute' is a front-to-back gem."
