"The ten songs on [Bones] come quietly, like strangers rapping softly on the window. Their beauty builds slowly. Blakeslee is adept here at shaping lush backdrops for her stories... Blakeslee is a performer to appreciate as much for her eye, as she surveys what's around her, as for her honey-toned voice." Daily Hampshire Gazette, Northhampton, MA

"Heather Shayne Blakeslee's music melds contemporary folk rock with darker themes and the smell of Autumn. While most of the songs are centered around her acoustic guitar and luxurious voice, the album benefits from its minimal instrumental accompaniment and its crystal clear production... Blakeslee has created an album that is soft, dark, feminine and mature." Splendid E-Zine

"Bones by Heather Shayne Blakeslee is an album by a woman who knows exactly what she is doing. Bones is a solid debut by a powerful new voice. She, her guitar, her story songs, and a few friends for depth of sound add up to a full experience. Her music runs the gamut of blues, country blues, and straight folk, but her lyrics and her ability to get inside the mind of her characters are what really bring this above the norm." Green Man Review, Canada
