  • There's something special about accidentally discovering overlooked singers as brilliant as Phoebe Snow. If folk-soul were ever a category, Phoebe Snow is its originator - what a voice...
  • Peace Phoebe. You touched many hearts, especially mine.
  • Phoebe, I always thought that you were singing just for me. You are missed.
  • May you rest in peace, ma'am.
  • R.i.P Phoebe Snow -a soulful, jazzy & very unique voice
  • r.i.p.
  • May you dwell forever in the garden of joy, dear Phoebe.
  • What a brilliant vocalist she was. My old voice teacher and I just had a great conversation about Phoebe's passing, reminiscing on how her music has impacted both of our lives. Thank-you for rollin' the good times, Phoebe.
  • I am very sad to hear of her passing. Although I had heard this song before I didn't get to see her live. That's a shame. She sounded just wonderful on the Youtube clip I just viewed: "Poetry Man (1989)".
  • She had a distinctive voice. Reminded me a bit of Billie Holladay. R.I.P
