“Karan Casey’s latest album is revelatory. She’s always been a singer of songs that tell a story and show their muscle…This is a strikingly three-dimensional work that stands the test of intensive and repeated listening with ease. A vivid and dazzling snapshot of Casey invincible, at the height of her powers.” – Siobhán Long, Irish Times
“Casey’s voice is among the loveliest in folk music and she’s a wonderful interpreter of both contemporary and traditional material.” – Boston Globe
“Karan Casey’s latest solo venture is a thing of rare beauty.” – Sing Out
“The most soulful singer to emerge in Irish traditional music in the past decade.” – The Glasgow Herald
“If ever any doubt existed about who’s the best Irish traditional woman singer today, “Exiles Return” sweeps aside all pretenders…Karan Casey has no vocal peer.” – Irish Echo
