"...a more diverse take on Americana with a distinctly female tone, and quite charming." — East Bay Express
"Deborah Crooks makes the case for a return to the roots of rock"- Consequence of Sound
“…pop folk as clean and natural as spring water.” ---Stuart Thornton - Monterey County Weekly
"Deborah Crooks is a vibrant artist carrying on the San Francisco tradition of powerful female singer/songwriters with literate lyrics and progressive musical attitudes; well respected within the music scene and increasingly so outside of it. Her lyric-driven and soul-wise music has drawn comparison to Lucinda Williams, Chrissie Hynde and Natalie Merchant and been included on compilation Cds including Rock and received radio and rave reviews from the blogosphere and beyond. Performing throughout the West Coast of the US and beyond, she's appeared at many festivals and events including Sunset Junction, California Music Fest and the Harmony Festival.
