Blame Sally, says the Marin Independent Journal, has “suddenly burst out of the pack as a Bay Area phenomenon, selling out shows, winning over new fans and enjoying tremendous response to their third CD, ‘Severland,’ a collection of eclectic folk pop songs that are personal, playful and political.”
“An amazing collection of talented local musicians has banded together and released a stunning new CD. ‘Severland,’ the latest from San Francisco’s Blame Sally, should bring this female foursome universal acclaim. Individually, Renee Harcourt, Monica Pasqual, Jeri Jones and Pam Delgado have long displayed stirring singer-songwriter gifts. Together they’re a powerhouse unit, presenting outstanding lead vocals and harmonies. ‘Severland’ carves out a strong identity on the indie-pop edges of Americana. Among the highlights (though there’s not a weak track among the dozen here) are the riveting title tune, the piano-driven ‘Fillmore Street,’ the haunting ‘Devil to Pay’ and the country-rocker ‘Trouble.’” –Paul Freeman, Palo Alto Daily News (Feb ’07)
“‘I’m not big fan of protest music,’ says Monica Pasqual, one-fourth of folk-pop band Blame Sally. The San Francisco singer-songwriter’s admission might startle anyone who has heard ‘If You Tell a Lie,’ the de facto centerpiece of Blame Sally’s new CD, ‘Severland.’” — Derk Richardson, 96 Hours, San Francisco Chronicle
