Debbie Hennessey / Press

"No Longer Broken…effortlessly blends genres and connects the universal experiences of love lost (“Every Song is You”), found (“No Longer Broken”), damaged (“Let Me Go”) and massaged with liquor (“Whiskey Charm”). Heartache aside, No Longer Broken is something to celebrate…for fans of all types of music…a little bit country with a dash of rock ’n’ roll, a few bursts of pop and some rich rhythm and blues that collides with deep soul.…the production values and her voice – that voice! – will blow you away.”

“Sometimes the boulevard of broken dreams is really a highway of smashed hearts. LA-based singer/songwriter Hennessey been down that road. But No Longer Broken is in the past tense; she's looking in her rearview mirror, leaving the dashed hopes and bad shit behind…honest talk from a strong woman; the music is brimming with infectious pop/rock melodies even when the lyrics are tossing poison darts…While there are country flavors in the grooves, this is definitely a West Coast record…producer Jeffery Marshall's riffs give a kick…the title cut offers a feeling of emotional uplift from all the heartache…killer slide guitar makes it go down soulful and easy. When Hennessey lets it rip, she doesn't hold back. "Liar, cheater," she rages on "You Can't Unpull a Trigger." The mean harmonica captures the anguish in her singing. On "Let Me Go," Hennessey leaves her soul bare - and the listener breathless. Breaking up may be hard to do, but it's worth it if it inspires albums as excellent ”

“(No Longer Broken) "A seasoned singer/songwriter, Hennessey imbues her craftily structured songs with a husky vocal resonance and some deluxe backup by deft players. “Every Song Is You” is our favorite, a tune whose theme is music’s power to evoke and to transport. Suffused with organ, backup singers and a neat, nimble guitar solo, this midtempo song is catchy and satisfying...Hennessey is an experienced hand who can certainly deliver a polished product."”

“Hennessey's bold, husky delivery puts its imprint on her material, whose catchy hooks and spot-on arrangements show she knows her stuff and is surrounded by pro-calibre talent. Hennessey is a skilled artist whose polished work commands respect."”

Music Connection

"Good As Gone is rock solid country-pop...undeniably hooky...(Hennessey's) collection of Nashville-ready tunes serves as a wake-up call to radio programmers everywhere. Somebody sign this girl!"

Buddy Hollywood

"When a listener can not only hear the passion in a song, but actually feel it, then the musician’s job is done. Debbie Hennessey certainly does her job; she is a masterful musician and talent that everyone must experience.”

Robert Benson - Collecting Vinyl Records

"Los Angeles-based country-rocker Debbie Hennessey can sing the shingles off a barn...her voice is magnificent..."
