'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 "...Donna is the real deal" - Rick Grant, "Rick at Night" "Donna writes from her heart, sings from her soul"- Antoinette Webster, author '.. Her songs display a rocker's attitude vocally and especially lyrically even though the songs are smooth, not ragged and punky. 'Jacksonville' is getting the most attention, reaching high into the HotDisc Independent Top 20. 'Payin' to Play' speaks of the situation for Nashville up-and-comers in local nightclubs. The song rocks ala Bonnie Raitt. The musicians on this record are all strong. This album was well put together by a seasoned pro..' Jess Marich, Shake Magazine ' 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.
