Album Reviews of "The Simple Things"
"a very, lush, full sound...meticulously crafted." - KDVS, Davis, California July 2015

"I love her voice and I want to hear more." -DJ Vee, KCTY 107.7FM, Long Beach, California, May 7, 2015

"Good stuff! Great instrumentation and production work on that. Beautiful voice." - DJ Tracy, Under the Rock, KCSB 91.9FM, Santa Barbara, February 6, 2015

"Crafted over the course of 18 months, the album provides an eclectic glimpse into Mulberry’s nearly decade-long live music career. The songs run the gamut from slow-brewing acoustic ballads to jazz-inspired torch songs, and all put Mulberry’s powerhouse vocals dead center in the mix, making for a record that’s confident far beyond its first release status."
-Aly Comingore, Santa Barbara Independent, February 20, 2014

“This is a pretty extraordinary singer, she has a really great, beautiful voice and lots of things to say.”  -DJ Phil , The Road Tunes Sessions, KCSB 91.9 FM, Santa Barbara, California. April 8, 2014

"Boy, she's got a great voice!" - Janelle Younger, The Broken Spoke Folk Show, KCBX FM, San Luis Obispo, California, September 13, 2014.

Live Show Review 

"Her honey-smooth voice, which occasionally evokes Michelle Shocked, and quirky, good-natured lyrics are a pleasure. One song, simply titled “Island,” was inspired by her time living on Maui, and the other by her nephew, Lake, a “Future Cowboy."
-Justine Sutton, Noozhawk, October 26, 2012
