Interviews in A Deeper Blue: The Life and Music of
Townes Van Zandt by Robert Earl Hardy;
Interview in I’ll be Here in the Morning by Brian T. Atkinson; Book, Wild Ride – unpublished
This soulful singer/songwriter has an obvious affection for Tex-Mex and Central American music and for the work of fellow Texans
like Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. But it’s not surprising to learn that she has studied classical guitar – or that
she decided what to do with her life after hearing Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone.” …If such songs are autobiographical, De Leon’s life
hasn’t been easy: in any event, she clearly finds comfort in her music, and I suspect you will, too.’ Steve Wine, AP (Associated Press)
‘Her voice is reminiscent of Maria Muldaur, but Bianca De Leon is the current specialist Tex – Mex ballads. Superb.’ Roman Decoret,
Guitarist Magazine, FR
‘Beautiful haunting songs out of the south Texas borderlands.’ Tim Boxer, 15 Minutes, US
‘De Leon is a writer and singer of note who has produced an album that works on several levels and is the work of a person who has
lived life to get to this place. A place worth getting to.’ Steven Rapid, Lonesome Highway , US
‘Who ever saw a concert by Bianca undoubtedly know what I mean, this lady has the ability to you, though you’re somewhere in the
Netherlands, to look at her and listen, and get the feeling that you are in Texas. This lady writes, I think, quite often from their own
experience and that you can hear that this is credible, this sounds lived, this goes right to the heart.‘ Dani Heyvaert, Rootstime BE
‘I Sang Patsy Cline’ is a story that any singer would give her soul to have been able to write truthfully. ’ R2 Rock N Reel , UK
“Bianca’s songwriting has matured into a ripe fruit, texture, flesh and juice. You can bite into her songs, tearing the pulp with teeth,
with juice running down your chin” Robert Earl Hardy, A Deeper Blue, The Life and Music of Townes Van Zandt
‘Wistful tales of love and loss and that feeling which forms in the décor of the local cantinas and bars where broken hearts hide
somewhere in a dark corner to lick their wounds. Bianca De Leon is not to be underestimated songstress. ’ Door Cis van Looy, Written In
