gig reviews



reviewer: SaM Fell – iNpREss Magazine, 2007

Her voice is a tempest, it could engulf the entire US navy, sending them down to Davey Jones’ locker, for sure. Coupled with her 12-string acoustic, she’s got it sorted. Mark Grunden behind the kit is a guru and combined with bassist Chris Rogers the foundation is solid; whether they are laying down a mellow groove or rough housing it up they’ve got Simpson’s back. It’s Simpson’s vocal that is the mind bender, however you really need to hear it to believe it.

reviewer: adrian JacKSon – THE aGE, living artS & entertainMent, 1999

It was a triple treat with Melbourne singer Kerri Simpson opening the show ... She began a cappella, commanding the audience’s attention with the exceptional power of her voice, on a gospel song and a voodoo chant ... Simpson was a hard act to follow.

By the end of the night there seemed little doubt to everyone in the audience that Kerri Simpson is one of our finest singers.

reviewer: Bruce Elder - Sydney Morning Herald

"Australia's own Blues diva"


reviewer: Paul Parello - Radio WRMN Chicago

"Kerri Simpson sings the Blues like Kerri Simpson, not imitating but initiating, singing from the heart. Whatever genre of music Kerri places her vocal abilities in, she mixes all she's absorbed in her life and musical experiences and develops her own unique sound which comes straight from her soul."


reviewer: Lee Howard - MHS

"Kerri Simpson could sing the phone book and knock an audience out!"
