High Note Reviews
Funky, swinging, and magnificently soulful, Gretchen & the Pickpockets deliver gold performances...
Ill say it again; I could listen to this girl sing all day long. Gretchen and The Pickpockets album Falling Rising is hands down one of the best Ive heard so far this year.
Best of Western NY
Jazzy in its satisfying complexity, yet poppy in its glistening purity, Gretchen and The Pickpockets Falling Rising is a must-have album for the summer of 2018.
A lively and extremely enjoyable listening experience.
...soul and passion...
They are a refreshing, rewarding departure from much of the predictable...
Making a Scene!
