Deb Callahan chante avec passion et verve.

Il a reçu d'excellentes critiques de la communauté Blues et c'est mérité.

Blues Revue la surnomme "the next Bonnie Raitt" . Deb a partagé la scène avec de grands artistes tels que Buddy Guy, Billy Preston, James Cotton, Debbie Davies, Savoy Brown, Southside Johnny, Joe Bonamassa, et Tommy Castro.

Un très beau 1er album de cette fille avec une très belle voix de soul/blues.

Si vous aimez Bonnie Raitt, Rory Block, ou Maria Muldaur, vous aimerez cet album.

“Philadelphia’s Deb Callahan is a gifted singer.songwriter ..her voice is matchless in the ring of sultry blue-eyed blues singers” Living Blues

“Deb Callahan is a great writer and an even better new voice for the blues. It’s as if she’s an old soul, but with a sense of what’s new. She’s a must hear.” Blues Source

"this nearly flawless debut signals to the rest of the world what those in her home area know well: Deb Callahan is a major talent“ "Bonnie Raitt, Etta James, and Aretha Franklin...Callahan is very nearly in their league." Blues Revue Magazine

She sings with all the authority of Ma Rainey or Janis Joplin, but it’s her song-writing that sets her apart” Sing Out! Magazine

“A singer with sandpaper-laced, soulful pipes, displaying huge promise. Her 2002 debut, If the Blues had Wings, is a striking endeavor. An excerpt from Memphis Minnie’s “Moanin’ the Blues”—one of a few well-placed, ancient blues snippets—gives the album its title and opens it up, leading into “Mama’s Curse, Mama’s Blessing,” an eerie blues that lets loose spirits directly from the mud of the delta. “More Love” is dramatic, the piano and washes of organ giving it a churchy feel. “Burning Bridges,” meanwhile, is a catchy roots-rocking tune” Hittin The Note Magazine, Rensselaer, NY
