“Her connections to these personal tunes is visceral and immediate… she takes on a chameleon-like delivery, changing her vocal approach and grain as the songs ebb and flow. She belts it out on slow, introspective ballads; her vocals skips along on uptempo tunes. Gospel is in Bowman’s musical DNA, too, and “Shelter Me From The Storm” is a stunning closer. Replete with a choir and wailing Hammond B-3, Bowman is nearly perfect at this speed”
“Some organic soul has her in an earnest “Where Can We Go” and she digs deep on a hip reading of Herbie Hancock’s “Butterfly.” Best of all are the intimate piano duets, with Bowman stretching over the chanson “La Vie En Rose” and a whimsical “Crazy He Calls Me.” Heart and voice on sleeve.”
“Refreshing multi-talented jazz vocalist Deb Bowman will (easily) capture your heart in only the first few bars of her new release… Her soulful rendition of “Georgia On My Mind” will make you a believer in all those talents…superb.”
Thank you for your continued support of the arts!
