“ Ste-Croix is a talented singer-writer whose latest CD, Here I Am, neatly balances serious pop with a rootsy type of rock. Nicely done.” Tom Harrison, The Province.
“Produced by Vancouver’s Bill Buckingham and featuring some of our best players, this is a rich amalgam of writing styles from a fine singer…with songs like ‘Berry Point Road” show loving attention to craft.” John P. McLaughlin, The Vancouver Province
“The Gaspé, Québec native possesses the songwriting prowess of storytellers Dar Williams, Shawn Colvin and Tom Waits, with an immediately recognizable, smoky voice that fluctuates between a sensual bluesy Bessie Smith, an assertive country-tinged Mary Chapin Carpenter, and a heartfelt acoustic rocker Sarah McLachlan.” Xtra West
“Here I Am is easily one of the best albums of 2007, Period. I will have to say this, the reason by Bonnie Ste. Croix has been around for so long is due to how moving and powerful her music and voice is. Here I Am (self-released) may become one of my favorite albums for a few reasons. Her voice is very moving in the Sarah McLachlan sense, but that was a first impression. As one takes a more intense listen to her music, one gets a better impression of her as a singer, and perhaps as a person. When the album begins with the title track, the listener is off for a ride that is a joy to be a part of. She’s a woman who doesn’t like to stay around in one musical place at any given time, one song may be awash in lush keyboards, another may have crispy beats sampled and looped while a mandolin and slide guitar dance with each other, other times she may reach for the heartstrings with a country song, as she does in “Stay” … most of her music is rootsy and organic…her voice remains the same in any texture, sounding comfortable in each one. There’s a confidence in her voice that is very warm, and while she may reveal lyrics that touch on uncertainty and fear, Here I Am proves that this is her on her own path, walking down fearlessly.” John Book, Music for America
