"An honest singer/songwriter who'll seduce you with her smoky voice...." DIY Reporter, September 11, 2004
"5 Acres" exemplifies the California native's tenacious commitment to her path as an artist in search of truth and its expression. Exploring themes of identity, love and faith, "5 Acres" spans a wide emotional range. Backed by a stellar cast of musicians, each song demonstrates a careful attention to lyric honed by Deborah's lifetime of writing. The result is a collection steeped in story, image and feeling.

"Crooks is moody like Stevie Nicks and Midnight Oil and somewhat melancholic all on her own... "Dream Me," is a great song of compassion. Listeners should be eager to hear the rest of 5 Acres."
--Woman Rock December 2004
"Her lyrics are both honest and courageous. She has a black velvet style that reminds me of Alana Myles.
"The first track, "Answers", is definitely my favorite song on the cd. It's upbeat tempo is lively while Deborah sings with conviction and faith. This is a song that probably everyone can relate to at one time or another." -- Monica Yonge, Yonge Music
"The musical style is totally different, but think Johnette Napolitano or even Annie Lennox. Her voice is full of character and country-tinged charm." -www.Southofmainstream.com
