"It was a pleasure to discover this grass-roots artist with a keen historical consciousness and a wonderfully appealing musical style."

the folknik - San Francisco Folk Music Club

"Gerri Gribi sings in a clear, concise voice that echoes the purity of the early Joan Baez combined with the authority of the later...A thoroughly entertaining performer, as well as one with a refreshing point of view."

Madison Capital Times

"Thanks for singing about something besides your love life!"
