Donna Frost

Girls Like us

"Even when Donna Frost picks up her acoustic guitar, the point of view is that of a brass-in-pocket rock chick. Even when her country influences show, there's a rocker's grit and guts in her words and attitude. As the singer of the Bunnies, one of Nashville's first punk-rock bands, she burned a path for others to follow. "Girls Like Us," her new CD, proves she's still blazing a trail all her own" Michael McCall, Nashville Scene

"Like a chameleon, her smooth vocals transition from track to track. She reminds one of an early nineties Mary Chapin-Carpenter, mixed in with some Heidi Newfield, and a little soul a la Janis Ian from Seventeen. But she never falls into the trap of letting the music overtake the musician...This is one artist that I believe will be able to stay true to her indie roots no matter how mainstream her work becomes" Jenny Delamotte, Music News Nashville

“Sometimes songwriters are so busy writing a lyric that they forget to wrap it in a good tune. Not so with Donna Frost. Each lyrically sound cut is enveloped in a well-acted scene of musical imagery. A folky edge with a bluesy overtone and a country passion, this diverse disc is a musical résumé for this talented Texan”..Lucky Boyd, My Texas Music

“ …Her songs display a rocker's attitude vocally and especially lyrically even though the songs are smooth, not ragged and punky”…Jess Marich, Shake Magazine

“…Donna is the real deal” – Rick Grant, “Rick at Night”

“Frost’s music hits you like a wry smile from a waitress that serves truckers food by day & rocks out on her Stratocaster at night”-Chicago Acoustic Underground
