The Buzz on Ann Kerstetter

"Duke St.Diary" chosen by the International Blues Foundation as a 2010 Semifinalist for the IBC Best Self produced CD.

Blues Revue- June/July 09'
Ann Kerstetter is a fabulous singer with personality, wide emotional range, and a welcome lack of affectation. And the arrangements provided by the band are praiseworthy."

Bonnie Tallman, BC Productions Artist Management Group.
Ann Kerstetter put on a performance - a show! -She let the crowd know all about herself and what she does. My hat goes off to her for her drive and spunk. The Williamsport Community Arts center was lucky in that the venue offered TWO terrific concerts last Thursday night, Bonnie Raitt and Taj's "BonTaj" and Ann Kerstetter.

"I had the pleasure of hearing Ann Kerstetter's Band at the International Blues Challenge this year and was really taken with their performance. Great musicality combined with Ann's beautifully rendered vocals had the crowd hooked and wanting more.

Norman Davis, Midnight Flyer Blues Show. Portland Review: "Duke St. Dairy"
Most of the blues CDs that come my way are fairly average...okay, but not great. So I wasn't expecting a lot from an unknown in Pennsylvania. Well, one should never assume and I was knocked out by Ann's album. She sings with authenticity and passion and has a marvelous voice.

After listening to Ann Kerstetter's first release, Classics, and now this her latest, "Duke St. Diary)
I am convinced the girl can sing! Ann has complete control over her voice - generating a colorful palette of vocal textures and nuances to effectively grab the listener and relay her message. While Ann opted for musical variation with strong influences of jazz and pop, the release is dominated by the blues. The production is first are the arrangements. This is a great recording in every possible way.

Ann Kerstetter is an artist that is finally getting her due. For some musicians finding a modicum of success is not easy. For Ann, lightning has struck twice and she’s captured it in a bottle. To say that Ann Kerstetter has resurfaced back onto the music scene here in the Susquehanna Valley would be an understatement. She started singing when she was 16 years old with “Crosstown Bus” although her family members will tell you that she has been performing since she was about 4 yrs old.
Since returning to the music scene from her self imposed hiatus to time out and start a family, Ann has hopped back onto the musical merry-go-round and has been raking in the brass rings. Now that she is back, she is savoring the sweet success of her return.
The years away from the spotlight had not diminished her desire and passion to perform.
The growing demand for her live performances is reflected in her schedule. Brenda Brosious Dames of PA. Aug. 2009
