"A cool, mellow sound, beautifully melodic," (CBC TV)
A veteran singer-songwriter from Windsor Ontario, Deirdre Roberts has been performing since 1992, when she formed The Kildare Trio. Roberts’ songwriting is at times ethereal, at times pulsating and dynamic, always densely lyrical and melodic. “Stark and beautiful, her voice transports introspective lyrics…and a refined songwriting ability” (Capital Theatre). Roberts’ sound reflects a range of musical influences, from Bowie to Kate Bush, Beck to Patrick Watson. Her songs are truly original, though, generating “a curious effect on the spine of the listener” (Windsor Reader). “A cool, mellow sound, beautifully melodic,” (CBC TV), Roberts’ songs convey “a signature lyrical attitude that never fails to balance on the edge of epiphany and bittersweet defeat” (The Lance).
