"Guy Clark, Dirty Linen, Third Coast Mag, Houston Chronicle"

“A voice from Texas that does it right”- Guy Clark

Her fourth album (Love, Guns & Money) features a photo of her standing in front of a Dutch club’s chalkboard that reads ‘de Texaanse Troubadour Bianca DeLeon.’ she’s much better known in Europe than in Texas.….DeLeon is rooted in and lives in two different worlds, the Texas-Mexico borderlands in which she was born and raised, and which, in my experience, few Anglos seem to be able to write about convincingly, and the national and international singer-songwriter venue circuit…. she’s a bit different from your average troubadour. How many of them could write “I Sang Patsy Cline (“the Night Noriega Fell’)?-3rd Coast Music –John Conquest

“Bianca DeLeon…Tex-Mex border ballad..only a few artist who excel at it..(she’s) nearly in a class of her own- Dirty Linen

“‘Border ballad’ has become such a loathsome cliché that I’d like to send a copy of Bianca’s CD-The Long Slow Decline of Carmelita … to everyone who’s written or plans to write one, to show them why they shouldn’t. Add De Leon to your list of true Texas singer-songwriters.” – 3rd Coast Music

“Queen of the border ballad” John Nova Lomax, Houston Chronicle - Guy Clark, Dirty Linen, Third Coast Mag, Houston Chronicle

 "Hooray for Bianca! A voice from Texas that does it right.- Guy Clark

Love, Guns & Money   (Lonesome Highway 3333)
Her fourth album features a photo of her standing in front of a Dutch clubs chalkboard that reads de Texaanse Troubadour Bianca DeLeon.. shes  much better known in Europe than in Texas.
 

.DeLeon is rooted in and lives in two different worlds, the Texas-Mexico borderlands in which she was born and raised, and which, in my experience, few Anglos seem to be able to write about convincingly, and the national and international singer-songwriter venue circuit. shes a bit different from your average troubadour. How many of them could write I Sang Patsy Cline (the Night Noriega Fell)?

 

As always, DeLeon travels first class, with backing by guitar great John Inmon, Radoslav Lorkovic on piano, B3 and accordion, The East Side Flash resophonic guitar, David Carroll bass and Paul Pearcy drums, on a set that includes a song in Spanish, Buscando Por Ti, a honky tonker, The Bottles On The Table, striking observations on love and loss, Independence Day, This Time and Silence Speaks Louder Than Words and ends with a medley of Townes Van Zandts Nothin and Hank Williams Ramblin Man. --- 3rd Coast Music  John Conquest

 

       Film- "Cut Off" (starring Faye Dunaway, Malcolm McDowell, Amanda Brooks, and Ann Archer),featured at Cannes Film Festival, included  Biancas song "Six Pack of Misery".  

       Video Game- High Timin' Girl- licensed for the video game "Big Mother Truckers 2".

       Previous CDs- Repeated strong showings on EuroAmericana charts.  Hit #1 on Irish chart

Other earlier praise

 Bianca DeLeonTex-Mex border ballad..only a few artist who excel at it..(shes) nearly in a class of her ownshe gets strong support from an all-star cast of Austin & Tejano musicians including Bobby Flores, Joel Guzman, and Redd Volkaert.-Dirty Linen 

Border ballad has become such a loathsome clich that Id like to send a copy of  Biancas  CD-The Long Slow Decline of Carmelita (and David Rodriguez Man Against Beast) to everyone whos written or plans to write one, to show them why they shouldnt.  Add De Leon to your list of true Texas singer-songwriters.  3rd Coast Music
