Singing about faith, love and loss, San Francisco songwriter Deborah Crooks is an intimate and edgy artist whose lyric driven and soul-wise music has drawn comparison to Lucinda Williams, Jesse Sykes and The Cowboy Junkies. Widely published as an essayist and journalist, her lyrics are honed by a lifetime of writing, while her music draws on folk, rock, Americana and the blues. Her first full length CD “Adding Water to the Ashes,” (2008) garnered favorable reviews and led to her receiving a Bay Bridged Recording Grant to record at Tiny Telephone Studios. The result is the new EP “It’s All Up to You” featuring 7 new tracks that range from acoustic pop to folk-rock to blues. Deborah has also showcased at the 2006 Millennium Music Conference, the 2005 Rocker Girl Magazine Music Convention, during SXSW, at the 2007 Harmony Festival and 2009′s California Music Fest. In 2010, she also appeared as a featured speaker on purpose and creativity at both MacWorld and SXSW.
“Super talented. Catch her while you can before a ticket to her show is 50 bucks.”
