“The music that Birdie Fenn Cent writes and sings is as pure and as honest as it gets. She lives it and writes about it and writes about it and lives it. She is a songwriter’s songwriter whose blood runs the color of music. Her songs shake things up, turn things inside out and dance with the skeletons in society’s closet. It takes courage to be vulnerable, to let the birds out of your heart and pull the rug from under your demons. Birdie does this—line after line, song after song.” –Jason Crabtree
“Ellensburg singer-songwriter Birdie Fenn Cent is among my favorite in the current crop of Northwest folkies. Her singing is subtle, contained, and grounded without ostentatious flourishes, but it is nevertheless emotionally evocative and vibrant. And her songs are full of killer turns of phrase. She can slay you with a whisper, but that’s not to say her songs lack intensity. Her debut album, “Gold From Rust”, is not yet a year old, and I already want more.” Pat Muir, Yakima Herald.
