"... the band goes from the funky shuffle of the opening tune Shed A Tear to the near-perfect AAA pop such as Hey or the closing track Desire with obvious chemistry."

Stuart Derdeyn Vancouver Sun Feb. 28. 2017.

Your show was a delight...reminded me of the genuineness and open sweetness of Jane Siberry concerts in the 80s. Keep on singing you and your band are the real thing.

"Kathryn's live performance videos, on Blue Dirt Girl's YouTube Channel, present her material in everything from full band studio sets to back porch strum-alongs and it’s clear she’s right at home anywhere."

Stuart Derdeyn Review, Vancouver Sun, Feb. 28. 2017.

"Your music to me is very unique with lots of changing beats and tempos, driving, unusual sounds like mimicry, syncopation... and a bit fringy."

Debra Matwychuk Photographer Vancouver, B.C.

"Your songs are warm, rich and moving."

Judith S. - Duo Sylvia Lounge Show patron.
