KINKY AT THE ROOT, Released 2011

LISTEN TO "KINKY AT THE ROOT"

 

"Dede Priest effortlessly melds the genres of Blues, Soul and Jazz using an extraordinary voice that melds salaciousness and innocence, purity and clarity, as she performs vocal acrobatics on a set that exudes talent and sheer class."
Mick Rainsford, Blues In Britain

"Intensive, powerful voice and great production.  An impressive album.  Dede Priest effortlessly builds bridges between styles.  The musicians perform with great focus and lay down an enjoyable groove.  'Kinky At The Root' is convincing and for sure belongs in the Top Ten of Blues - Roots releases of 2011."
ThR, Blues News Magazine

"Dede Priest has a voice that grabs you by the throat.  Mixing Blues, Soul, Gospel, and Jazz, she makes honest music and cannot be put in a box."
Ton Ouwehand, De Twentsche Courant Tubantia

"Dede Priest is not a shouter, but rather plants her nails into your back when you least expect it.  Piercing wah wah guitar, a grainy slide, an organ that produces only the purest molten chocolate.  Thank goodness there is not the slightest concession to today's musical trend."
Chris van Oostrom, Lust For Life

"All songs are so originally and perfectly arranged and produced. The whole album is beautiful."
Rien Wisse, Block

"Dede Priest proves to be a very capable composer and lyricist. Her impressive voice provides the golden edge. As with "Candy Moon", again there is this headstrong mix of styles in which Blues, Jazz, Soul, Funk, and Gospel fight for precedence."
Marcel Haerkens, Jazzism & De Limburger

"A CD jewel full of top recordings and rich with atmosphere. For Dede Priest, it is the feeling that counts first, and she chooses clearly for the best musicians in the right places. Whoever has seen her perform live, of course, doesn't need to be convinced anymore."
Ron, Rootstime.be

"A beautiful CD."
Gerry Jungen, Arrow Blues Box

"Dede Priest, more than ever, sounds confident and full of life experience. This CD is a tight unit.  Solid as a rock.  Dede Priest deserves everyone's attention with this album, which is full of Soul, Blues, Gospel, and Jazz."
Joost Festen, 8 Weekly

"A super mix of Roots, Jazz, Funk, and Soul. A very versatile lady with a beautiful voice. Terribly good."
Frank van Engelen, BluesMagazine.nl

"I won't beat around the bush; 'Kinky At The Root' is another pearl. The vocal capacities of Dede Priest are impressive. I sit with goosebumps as I listen. She gives to each song, however different, the right atmosphere and sound. A lady with a golden voice. A CD to cherish."
Ton Kok, Bluesman.nl

"It would surprise me if this album does not win an award."
Wil Wijnhoven, Bluesbreeker.nl

"Authentic and beautiful."
Ronald Besemer, Kindamuziek
