The Year in Music 1991 Critics Choice: "DENEAN, FIRE PRAYER"- BILLBOARD, Debbie Holley
"Denean's voice is rich and clear, lending great strength to these chants...the songs reach deep within, speaking especially to a woman's healing journey...to listen is to participate in a sacred ceremony. [Great for] singing along. Highly Recommended!" - SEQUOIA, HEARTSONG REVIEW
"These mystical chants, enhanced by Denean's penetrating voice, break through our limits of awareness, opening a healing channel for both women and men, creating a new sense of oneness with our Earth Mother." DIK DARNELL COMPOSER/PRODUCER
"Out of all the Native American music I have collected and heard, Denean is by FAR my favorite artist....
A mix of beautiful music, words and voice that cannot be topped! I highly recommend these 3 CD's for your collection...."

"I first heard of Denean from a friend who made a sampler CD of music by various artists. The song I heard by Denean was "Fire Prayer," a song of the Ancient Ones. I closed my eyes, and visualized a fire, the fingers of the warm fire dancing to the song, the ancients faces appearing on the rocks, trees, etc. in the shadows. When I had a chance, I bought the CD, and listen to it frequently.
It's very easy to tap to the beat of the music, which has a Native American flavor. Denean's rich voice enhances the experience of her music. All one has to do is hear her voice to know that she pours out her soul and love of the Earth Mother in each song. If you enjoy Alternative Music, or New Age (A term that encompasses many types of music), and enjoy artists such as Lisa Thiel, Zeeza, Circle of Women, then I would highly recommend this CD."

"I really enjoy this album. It is a great combination of native american rhythms and goddess lyrics. It is very contemporary. And all of it done with talent and professional polish. I love to listen to it in the car and it would make a nice album to meditate to." By a customer
