US - California - Full Moon 179 - 04/18/11
Deborah Crooks has made an EP in the Americana tradition, and a nice on at that.
"Off Sides" recalls Victoria Williams though she clearly has her own voice. "Time" has a feel that very clearly shows her to be gifted songwriter and singer. The theme is hardly new, but she puts her own spin on it. This too-brief EP concludes with a heartfelt cover of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" that she really nails. It makes me want to hear more from her and soon.
