“Vocally, Kropf is similar to Suzanne Vega and Tracey Thorn, singers who are constantly tweaking their musical palettes. On “Chrysalis,” Kropf follows a similar path...”
"Chrysalis" is a lush soundscape with Ms. Kropf spreading her core piano sound a little wider with the addition of dulcimer and vibraphone via co-producer Jeff Berman.
"Hestia sounds very much like a cross between Suzanne Vega and early Kate Bush without sounding too terribly much like either...Her songs are strong and she has a wonderfully resonant voice that is particularly effective...Really smooth beautiful stuff. Recommended. (Rating: 5++)"
"there's no denying the warm, cozy feel of this album, or Kropf's gift for spinning deceptively simple webs of delicate sound."
“Local folk singer and songwriter Heather Kropf pens beautifully detailed songs, teaming them up with the area's best acoustic players. Kropf represents a new wave of young singers on the edge of representing the region to a wider audience.”
“Kropf's work is quietly elegant, both musically and lyrically”
"Kropf is melodic and delicate but powerful. She is not afraid to explore a subject in depth from different angles, much as an artist would do different studies of a still life."
"I love Heather's music! Her voice is soothing and the melodies go directly from ear to heart."
"Her new CD...captures the organic essence of her live performance. The sound is clear, simple and devoid of the kind of studio post-production that can hamper an artist such as Kropf, whose piano and vocal skills fit together so well."
