"Deborah Henriksson Shines Like the Diamond on "Let Go"

Swedish adult contemporary singer/songwriter Deborah Henriksson shines like the diamond she is in the brand new single “Let Go,” a brilliant pop fusion of rich Americana and bristling Celtic folk music that serves as a testament to the borderless power of songcraft.”

"Deborah Henriksson’s “Calling” has a Celtic feel that I fell in love with from the first moment I heard it. Her openness in the song makes her a true artist. Her fusion of pop and Celt sounds blend so well in this song that it is infectious, beautiful and mystical and make for a colorful musical experience! It is hard not to embrace the old Celtic feel in her artistry. Beautiful!"

“This celtic-style song and reflective video are gorgeous! If you need to de-stress, reboot and bring tranquility and harmony back into your day, this is the ticket. The panoramic ocean seascape shots in the video transported me to a thoughtful meditation where I could put aside the trappings of the day and focus on the simple beauty of the world and of music. The song "Calling" is taken from Deborah Henriksson's acclaimed and diverse album "Traces". Give yourself the gift of calm and reflective gratitude - watch this video.”

"...I do love Deborah's ethereal and sometimes surprisingly powerful voice. Her passionate, convincing siren's singing stays the focus point on every track and that is what counts!"

“Singer Deborah Henriksson, born in New Jersey but a long-time resident of Sweden (Västerås), has released several albums, including the slightly New Age influenced album ”The Heart’s Cry” (2012). On “Traces”, she conveys a deeper sense of expression than in the previous album. The voice is warm, personal, even more beautiful. The album mirrors a close and successful collaboration with producer Mats Nyman, who plays all the instruments and has also written the music. The lyrics are by Henriksson. The entire album permeates warmth and passion and a strong poetic expressivity. In addition to these aspects the album covers a wide range of styles. As before there is a certain Celtic influence, as in the wonderful song “Fallen Disguise”, but Deborah Henriksson offers so much more than this. Traces is an impressive album which shows that she continues to evolve.”
            - Gert-Ove Fridlund, Hallandsposten (Sep 10, 2014)
 “Deborah Henriksson sings with understatement, for the force of her voice is in the artistic expression, not in vocal strength. Her diction is distinct with simple beauty. She uses her voice like an instrument which is both a loyal subordinate to the songs but which also lifts them to heavenly heights in a clear eloquence of purity, beauty and exquisite expressiveness.” Deborah Henriksson sjunger nertonat. Kraften finns i det konstnärliga uttrycket, inte i vokal styrka. Diktionen är klar och underskönt enkel. Hennes röst blir ett instrument som både lojalt underordnas sångerna och lyfter dessa mot himmelska höjder i ett avklarnat utryck av renhet, skönhet och en utsökt vacker expressivitet. ”  from LIRA 1 2013 page 88

“If there was one word or phrase I would use to describe Deborah Henriksson it would be “true to self”. I give Henriksson high marks for being herself and just letting the chips fall where they may. This CD will simply make your day more passionate as some of the lyrical content touches on the passion of life itself. No doubt the true meaning of some of this material is buried deep between the lines, but there’s an undeniable Celtic passion beneath all this. Henrikkson is a very, very very capable singer but it’s obvious to me her primary goal as an artist is to make the world a much better place; one song at a time. If that’s sounds corny so be it. This CD spoke to me personally and inspired me on so many different levels – especially as a female listener.”

"...en sömlös helhet med Deborah Henrikssons ljusa, virtuost behärskade och mycket vackra röst"

"På sina tidigare skivor har Deborah Henriksson tolkat en amerikansk sångskatt från 1700-talet och framåt, men hon har även framfört tonsättningar av Robert Burns lyrik och sånger av samtida irländska artister. Det är som om hon letat och funnit sånger som kanaliserat hennes eget uttrycksbehov, sånger som hon gjort till sina egna med en stark men också komprimerad och nertonad uttryckskraft.På sitt nya album skriver Deborah Henriksson för första gången egna texter. Månginstrumentalisten Mats Nyman har skrivit musiken, oftast innan Deborah Henriksson satt sin text till den. Det ger ett följsamt förhållande där varje fonem går rakt in i melodin i en naturlig accentuering.Mats Nyman står också för det mesta ackompanjemanget, och även det bildar en sömlös helhet med Deborah Henrikssons ljusa, virtuost behärskade och mycket vackra röst."
