What the press is saying about Danielle Ponder:

"Vocalist Danielle Ponders brings natural power and emotion to stage". Allyson Lyke Rochester Music Examiner

"Danielle Ponder is a soul house!!" - Democrat and Chronicle

"So there we were on Gibbs Street, boppin' around to Filthy Funk's cool groove as Ponder rained soul down upon us, much like the clouds did soon after the set. Frankly, I think Ponder busted those clouds wide open." -Frank Deblase City Newspaper

She sports a sultry set of vocal cords, which are most often caught singing odes to a better world. Its hard to steal the show on beats like these, but Danielle Ponder can safely be credited as the glue that holds this project together On the albums closer Free, Ponder delivers one of the most powerful songs since Erykah Badus Soldier.
