VOYAGE continues to pay homage to the musical culture of Ireland, while exploring the musical journey each soloist has undertaken since the beginning of Celtic Thunder four years ago. Former members Damian McGinty and Paul Byrom have moved on - McGinty's star continues to rise after securing a reoccurring role on FOX's hit show GLEE (a result of winning last year's "The GLEE Project"), while Paul Byrom launches his own solo career as well. Keith Harkin is also working on a solo project while maintaining his integral role in Celtic Thunder. He is the first artist signed to the newly helmed David Foster Verve Music Group, and is readying his forthcoming solo debut wildly anticipated by "Thunder Heads" everywhere. The rest of the ensemble including Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Neil Byrne, George Donaldson and Emmet Cahill welcome 13-year-old Daniel Furlong to the fold as a guest artist on this recording. The group performances highlight the diversity of Irish music and song; from the powerful rendition of "Dulaman" to the love song "Maid of Culmore," the collection also features a rousing performance of "Galway Girl" and beloved Irish party song "My Irish Molly-O."
All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Voyage expands on the themes explored on Celtic Thunder's 2011 Heritage project by offering a balanced mix of both old and contemporary regional songs. While the collection may take numerous detours into AOR pop territory with typically lush, unapologetically schmaltzy renditions of radio hits like Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman to Me" and Air Supply's "All Out of Love," the roots of the project are firmly planted in traditional soil, and tracks like "Dulaman," "Seven Drunken Nights," and "Maid of Culmore" stand out from the others like a peat fire in the Arizona desert. [Voyage is also available in the DVD format.]

    Wanted: Phil Coulter!

    Where is the music of Phil Coulter? I don't recognize his touch anywhere in this album, more's the pity. Maybe this cd will grow on me.......let's hope so, because just thew initial hearing is not inspiring.
