"Nina's guitar style is wide and brave. As she glides thru this record project, she uses each of her guitars as if it's the one she was born to play. Acoustic or electric, she sounds beautiful, smokey, precise, full of the licks you love to hear, even though it sounds like you're hearing them fresh, for the first time, and some of them... you are.

"She's a musician's musician, or maybe she's just everybody's favorite guitarist."
.:. Nevada City Prospector .:.

"Amongst acoustic guitarists, Gerber is held in near universal high regard, not least for how she distills strength from subtlety. Her melodic fretwork warmly complements and never overwhelms..."
.:. Pasadena Weekly .:.

"One of the best acoustic and electric guitarists in the folk genre."
.:. Frets Magazine .:.

"One of the finest instrumentalists in the business."
.:. Press Democrat .:.

"Enough can't be said about how valuable Nina Gerber is to so many acoustic music projects in the area... Yet to put herself in the spotlight she deserves, Gerber has evolved from the late Kate Wolf's accompanist into an accomplished arranger and producer and a ubiquitous sidewoman... Gerber fleshes out each tune with brisk fills and sensitive solos that never distract from the fundamental feeling or direction of the composition. Unlike so many showboating rock guitarists these days, she plays to the singer and song, not to a video-addled audience's idea of virtuosity... Impeccable taste... Subtle six-string brilliance."
.:. East Bay Express .:.

"The evening's real star... Gerber usually says little and lets her guitar do the talking. She is a not-so-underground legend. Her wide-ranging folk-country-jazz-blues stylings have backed dozens of performers on stage and record."
.:. Oakland Tribune .:.

"Remarkable accompanist... A star in her own right... Gerber's contribution is magnificent..."
.:. San Francisco Examiner .:.
