"Los Angeles-based country-rocker Debbie Hennessey can sing the shingles off a barn...her voice is magnificent..." - Michael Scott Cain, Rambles
“Good As Gone” is an appealing, uptempo country song, which provides a terrific showcase for Hennessey’s rich, distinctive vocals. Hennessey has a voice which sounds authentic and soulful…” – Singer Universe
“Debbie’s unique singer/songwriter artistry carries a comfortable strength in her solid vocal performance and interpretations… known for her solid stage performance, the tracks chosen on (Rustic Heart) are sure fire hits played live. (Rustic Heart) has several tracks written by other songwriters but Debbie's presence delivers each songs lyrics as a story all her own.” - Toni K, Songsalive!
“First cd (Rustic Heart) from a remarkably original artist… that inimitable flavor of country/rock/soul… of those visionaries who unanimously unite critical and broad audiences. The Album of the Month without hesitation.” - Le Cri du Coyote
Her unique voice adds a special soul to tunes that are good on their own merit, but Debbie's vocals are a breath of fresh air. It shows that Debbie puts her heart and soul into her craft. A truly solid effort from a wonderful performer”. - Rikk’s Revues
“Hennessey's excellent album, Rustic Heart, has more than a few nice things going for it. Among them: great material, a lovely voice and terrific production by Rye Randa. It's a true indie album, yet it sounds as well-crafted as most tracks you hear on the airwaves. As the title suggests, there is a bit of country in these eight songs of love and/or heartache.” - The G-Man, NoHoLA Magazine
