What people are saying about Karina Denike:
"The best of the best: a San Francisco singer-songwriter with a powerful voice and some serious songwriting skills. This stripped-down performance suits her perfectly." YOUTUBE, 2012
"She is a naturally soulful performer, swaying and dancing, using her expressive face and her arms to underline her vocal delivery. But her singing, like her music, is perfectly balanced – her sense of pitch, volume, phrasing are formidable. It is a rare thrill to run into a performer who has such technique and such artistry. Denike’s songs combine a dizzying array of styles and influences: doo wop, early rock and soul, tin pan alley, cabaret, classic and contemporary singer songwriters. She distills everything into an organic, irresistable pop music. ." - Todd Wanerman - The Bay Bridged.com
"..Special shout-out to vocalist Karina Denike (of the Dance Hall Crashers and The Cottontails), whose vocal prowess recalls traditional jazz chops with modern style, relevance, and soul. Cheers". Laura Nagel - The Owl Mag
"In my humble opinion, she’s probably got one of the most powerful, virtuosic voices around and a vocal delivery that’s JUST SEXY. You really have to see her live to know what I mean" - MissionMission.com
"Some of Tony Sly’s longtime friends, scenemates and frequent collaborators are present and well-accounted for, ready to not merely tug at your heart strings, but to anesthetize them in whiskey and set them ablaze. Case in point: album-opener “Biggest Lie,” as performed by the inimitable vocal talent that is (former Dance Hall Crasher) Karina Denike is sparse, moody and downright haunting. Keep the Kleenex handy for this one, kiddoes; we’re about to embark on a roller coaster of emotions." Jaystone - album review at Dying scene
“When we first heard Karina Denike we were captivated by the depth of her music and her haunting delivery. You can listen to her songs over and over again and pick out new musical flavors and meanings with each hearing.” -David Kaye - Climate Theatre music box series.
