82843-EP_Front_CoverBay Area songwriter Deborah Crooks has released three CD’s of critically noted original music drawing on folk, rock, Americana and the Blues. Her diverse, ever-evolving artistic career has included studying writing and poetics at The Naropa Institute, voice with Faith Winthrop, Chloe Goodchild and Aambaprasad V Mysore (India), cowriting and collaborating with her Bay Area peers and regularly gigging throughout the Western Unites States.

Her songs have been placed on the PBS series Road Trip Nation, in the finals of the 2014 EcoArts Awards and on compilations including the recent Songs From the Fog collection. The East Bay Express described her music as “…a more diverse take on Americana with a distinctly female tone, and quite charming.”

In addition to her solo work, she collaborates on several projects and bands including Crooks/Walsh Blues (2009) and KCDC with Kwame Copeland, which released a 10-song collection “Your Own Reaction” in 2014.
