"...This is not just any 'girl with a guitar,' but someone with more-than-average talent. This is the 'girl with a guitar' who might become 'that girl playing at the club downtown' or 'the girl opening for your favorite band' next year....It would be hard to compare her to other artists without the cliché of comparing her to any and all guitar-toting ladies that came before her, but with the poetic qualities of an Ani DiFranco and the indie charm of a Ben Gibbard." - The Feminist Review


"You've got to love a girl named for a tree, but there's a lot more to adore about this melodic, hypnotic, self-taught Baltimore musician. Her debut album, Dialtones, offers hints of Ani Difranco and Lisa Loeb, only better." - Curve Magazine


"Acacia sings about universal themes, from frustration with the world and the dishonesty of humans to love that can never truly be requited. Her honest and evocative songs intertwine beautifully with her sweet yet powerful vocals, particularly in tracks 'Passion Play' and 'If I was Austin' when short angry bursts snap you back into reality. If you like Lisa Loeb, Ani Difranco or Mazzy Star you might like to try rising star Acacia Sears." - Lip Magazine

Bio

Like many urban metropolises, the streets of Baltimore City are lined with smoke-filled bars packed with noisy drunks who are more interested in the drink specials than the band they paid to see. Until Acacia Sears starts her set, they will keep shouting to each other about the new indie dance party in the neighboring city of Washington, D.C., or the latest raspberry stout from the local microbrewery. Once the microphone picks up the hypnotic tones of Acacia's voice, the conversation comes to a grinding halt.

Acacia Sears taught herself to play guitar at the age of 14, and was awing people at open mics and solo gigs by the time she was 16. From local coffee shops to crowded bars, the outcome is always the same. People stop what they're doing to listen to the melodic poetry of her songs.

She sings to universal topics, from frustration with dishonesty of humans to love that can never truly be requited, and her music grabs the listener's attention in all the right ways. Drawing her inspiration from artists like folk legend Ani Difranco and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, Acacia tells the first chapter of her story in her debut album, Dialtones.
