They said...

In my view Dolores happens to be one of the greatest singers we ever produced. Dolores is the pick of the bunch here. I have her records.
Mike Hanrahan (Stockton’s Wing)

Mary and Delores really stand out for me. Mary - what a voice, great to work with, a real lady. Delores - again what can you say, earthy. Silk or oak, or in between, like fine wines.
Fran Breen (The Waterboys)

Oh wow, again a wonderful singer and truly lovely woman and like many of our brothers and sisters let drink wreck her health, what’s the latest with her?
Wayne Sheehy (Hothouse Flowers)

Dolores can be very powerful indeed.
Matt Spalding (In Tua Nua)

Dolores Keane has an amazing voice and has such soul that she brings songs to life.
Gavin Ralston (Musician/Producer)

Amazing at mouth music.
Paul Byrne (In Tua Nua)

I'm on record as saying that Dolores Keane - in her own unique style - is as good a singer, for me, as Billie Holiday. The first time I heard her singing the purity and resonance of her voice brought tears to my eyes. That's how good I think she is.
Johnny Duhan (Singer)

Three great singers!
Greg Boland (Moving Hearts) on Maura O’Connell, Frances Black and Delores Keane

Like them... I kind of like things with a little bit more of an edge though... A friend of mine (long time ago) interviewed Frances and said she was super nice... Dolores Keane... I probably like a bit more.
Mark Dignam (Singer) on Frances Black and Dolores Keane

They are all top-notch Female Singers.
Neil Toner (RTE) on Maura O’Connell, Dolores Keane and Frances Black

I think Frances is very good, not overly gone on Dolores.
Michelle Sullivan (Singer) on Dolores Keane and Frances Black

Great singer.
Charlie McGettigan (Singer)

I don't know the music of Frances Black or Dolores Keane.
Nina Hynes (Singer)

They are both amazing people.
Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (Altan) on Dolores Keane and Frances Black

Both ladies are fantastic, love their talent and their personality.
Niamh Kavanagh (Singer) on Dolores Keane and Frances Black

She's great!
Honor Heffernan (Singer) on Dolores Keane

Dolores Keane is the Aretha Franklin of Ireland!
Frankie Gavin (De Danann) on Dolores Keane

Both very nice girls, always a pleasure to meet.
Francie Conway (Singer) on Frances Black and Dolores Keane
