"Just listened to Carrie Rowan's CD: Almost Home. The sweet soulful music with elegance and style is thought provoking and mellow like Sunday! The songs and vocals are smart, sincere and the mature, artistic expression of a budding artist blooming with talent".
- Charles Sorrento, Berklee College of Music Professor
"I've listened to Almost Home a number of times and think it's really well done...introspective, sincere, melodic, sweetly sung...some excellent melodies that stick. All the songs weave together in such a tapestry of emotions".
- Jon Ims, Hit Songwriter ("She's in Love with the Boy”)
"For a first CD, everything about it is beautifully polished, but it's her delicate voice and honest lyrics, along with an impressive lineup of musicians lending their talents on this CD that makes it an outstanding first effort".
- Kate Hannigan Reporter for the Weekly Record, June 2008

"Stefilia's Stone duo, Carrie Rowan and Adrienne Fawkes, jazzed up the crowd at the Plymouth Public Library's Annual Lawn Concert Series last August. They arrived ready to enchant a diverse audience ranging from young little princesses to bright seniors who love all kinds of music. While Carrie and Adrienne's voices blend as well as play off each other seamlessly; it is really their beauty as singers that shines through most brightly. Enjoy a great listen when you plan to bring Stefilia's Stone to your next event."
