"Review of Letters To Doe"

...her sound is unique. She's got the simple, lowly sounds of Jewel with a voice that soars like Kristin Cifelli, Cara Aley or Sarah McLachlan. Still, there's that undescribable element to her tunes...that worldly sound with somber tapping percussion that tugs at you and demands your attention. I have a feeling that we can expect great things from her, and I can't wait to hear what they are.


"Making Her Way to the Top"

By Ben Wayne
Entertainment Editor

In less than two years she has garnered a reputation for having one of the best voices in the San Diego coffeehouse scene.
In 2001 Saba was recognized as one of the top 50 female songwriters in the nation in the First Annual Pantene Pro-Voice Contest.
Not one to be easily dismayed or diverted, Saba has been building her career on her own terms"

"Life of a Spinster"

By Vicki Marangos

In faded jeans and a stylish brown tweed jacket, Saba could tell a thousand stories with her eyes alone, calming the cravings of music fiends in popular dives and coffee shops throughout San Diego. As a local singer/songwriter, her fresh, soulful works not only cross musical genres by blending elements of jazz, pop and rock, but they integrate telling, poetic lyrics with often melancholy sounds.

For those in San Diego who have caught Saba live, you know that there is nowhere for her to go but up. "

"The Saba Sound"

"To know how deeply involved in San Diego County's music scene is Saba, one need only look at the guest musician credits on her new CD: Joanie Mendenhall, Evan Bethany and Greg Laswell – stalwarts all of the local coffeehouse circuit.

Listening to the disc makes clear why they would want to be present, why Saba is one of the most popular of local artists among her fellow musicians.

There is a Saba sound, a vision of how her music should be performed coupled to the talent, arrangements and production values to pull off that vision.In the end, it is those songs and that voice that make this "Elbo Club" the rewarding listen it is – that have made Saba such a popular force in the local music community." - North County Times
