“An undiscovered brilliant vocalist.”
“Gibson boldly breaks the mold of untalented, young female artists playing generic, pop songs.”
“A torch singer with bite.”
“The title track "The Worst Kind of Way" could hold up against any Tom Waits tune.”
"Great music isn't always about haircuts, pretty faces and expensive wardrobes... sometimes it's actually having and nurturing real talent, and Delaney Gibson is an incredible talent, in absolutely the best kind of way."
"Her voice is indescribably expressive and rich with a range that goes from throaty growl to sublime soaring ecstasy. Add to that her sizeable talent as a songwriter and you've got the beginnings of a great album."
“There is something that sets GIBSON apart from the rest...sheer musicality. Her mastery over the piano, guitar, banjo and just about anything she puts her fingers on is intimidating and that tremendous dexterity coupled with her unforgettable songcraft...”
“Gibson has a set of chops that border on country crooner. (Think about mixing Christina Aguilera’s chops and Jenny Lewis’s bashfully endearing delivery and you get the idea.)”
“Her unique style, intelligent lyrics, and astonishing voice have made a huge impact on the industry and we can hardly wait to see what is next!”
“Gibson is a singer and pianist whose powerful voice has shades of Jewel at her best. Her debut album is a polished and accomplished effort. ”
“A blend of piano-based pop and sultry edginess makes Delaney Gibson the real deal.”
"Chicago" is a near-perfect piano ballad with a great melody, poignant lyrics and a beautiful string arrangement."
“The Worst Kind of Way is a solid effort with a lot of commercial potential. Delaney Gibson is a force to be reckoned with. I expect we'll be hearing from her for a time to come.”
“Delaney Gibson is her own kind of musician. She isn’t afraid to tackle more than one genre at a time. From piano-driven pop songs to country sass to orchestrated ballads to morbid southern-gothic tales of broken hearts. Delaney is making her music without care for what the industry thinks.”
"The vocal performance is incredible! I got chill bumps...Killer!"
"Gibson has not only mastered the guitar, piano and vocals, but she writes all of her own songs as well, making her a quadruple threat."
"Gibson is a twentysomething singer-songwriter...with a voice big enough to fill arenas, but she has a quirky sensibility. It is less American Idol and more Radiohead..."
"When Delaney began singing at the show the other night, I was sitting near the back and people around me were talking...about five notes into her first song, a hush fell over the place and you literally could have heard a pin drop."
"Gibson will have you laughing and crying and singing along when you least expect it."
"Gibson charmingly admitted that her version of “Such Great Heights” was actually based on Iron & Wine’s acoustic version, so it was actually “a cover of a cover,” but in truth her powerful acoustic version gave both previous examples of the song a good run for their money."
"...Solid songwriting with hook-filled choruses and tasteful harmonies..."
"She has a classically trained voice that soars with ease, and sobs a little on the way down."
