"Ms. Molaskey has just released A Kiss To Build a Dream On, an album of happy songs that is so buoyant it eliminates any hint of Sunday school sermonizing from the concept of sweetness and light."
—Stephen Holden, The New York Times September 11, 2008
"Wouldn't it be nice to make a CD like this?" I thought. There were no set lists, no rehearsals, just four musicians with various sized pieces of wood, with strings attached and two sets of vocal chords, a family, calling tunes that we loved, and existing for sixty minutes to create a joyful noise. This CD is as close to that experience as you can get in the confines of a recording studio." —Jessica Molaskey
