'These Brazilian-oriented tunes are courageously spare dialogues between Griffith's acoustic guitar and Newell's delicate, minor-key vocals. The slower the tempo, the more luminous the mood...Newell's forte is the appearance of fragility...Griffith's understatement makes for empathetic support.' - (Britt Robson, Minneapolis Star Tribune) 'Acoustic guitarist Griffith and singer Newell have put together a wonderfully surprising collection of love songs...that brings to mind steamy, moonlit tropical nights...But it is on their own songs that Griffith and Newell really shine... You do not listen to Enter You, Enter Love as much as you are seduced by it.' - (Rob Voedisch, Sun Current) 'Just like my mood, the phone lines light up every time I put Joan and Lucia on the air.' - (Craig Eichhorn, Radio Producer and Host, KBEM-FM)
