Praise for A French Collection…

  • “she has an effortlessly floating voice that cuts to the meaning of the song. But most of all, it is her gorgeous respect and palpable love of this material that communicates itself so vivaciously in the same way… she’s certainly a singer I’d like to hear again and again. ”

    — Mark Shenton, The Stage, London
  • “After engagements in New York, London and Paris, Boily is the very model of a modern chanteuse. She is in fine voice, singing with range, power and rich feeling.”

    — Everett Evans, Houston Chronicle
  • “There is no denying the quality of her voice or the standard of her musical taste. One thing she has in abundance is talent!”

    — Lisa Martland, The Stage, London
  • “Deborah possesses a distinctive voice; her singing approach is somehow both theatrical and intimate.”

    — Time Out, New York
  • “One of the greatest Cabaret voices on either side of the Atlantic.”

    — Cabaret Scenes, New York and London
