“Once you’ve heard her faintly twangy voice – it’s nearly impossible to forget”
– Preston Jones, Star Telegram
“Summer has a real soulful, country sound and puts on an amazing live performance. She is a really good songwriter, and she connects to both men and women.”
– Shayne Hollinger, 95.9 The Ranch
“Dean named her EP Unladylike, and even if she never covered a Patsy Cline or a Merle Haggard song or two (which she does), you’d hear her affinity for them in the dusty shuffle of her slow-to-mid-tempo tales of heartbreak and self-reflection, plied in her husky, weary voice –– a sound that leans into her band’s pedal steel and Telecaster twang like a person melting into a bar top after a long week.” – Fort Worth Weekly
“I use some of your lyrics on my Tender profile.”
– Girl fan at bar
