Improper Bostonian

That Shame showcases her in full rock mode, sometimes evoking the tone and phrasing of the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde...[Her] craftsmanship extends from the gorgeous vocals of “As I Wanted You” and the soaring crescendos of “Falling” to the catchy ’80s-flavored punch of “Take It in Stride.”

The Boston Herald

Nominated for female vocalist and singer-songwriter of the year: Yes, Barrett is a woman who sings and writes songs. But she could just as easily have nabbed nominations for album of the year for That Shame, or song of the year for the tough, tight rock tune “Take It In Stride.” She also should be a contender for best live act.

Magnet Magazine

“‘Here To Stay,’ the opener on the new LP, is a pop-driven story of a woman struggling in a world where success depends on standards other than her own. The track bursts with an energy of hopefulness and despair, matching the feelings of the protagonist all along the way.”—Magnet Magazine

The Big Takeover

Such boldface names as Neko CaseLana Del ReyCat Power, and Fiona Apple have been tossed about to describe the sound of Boston’s Abbie Barrett & The Last Date, but the massed vocal harmonies in this song off their forthcoming album, The Triples, reminds us of David Crosby’s brilliant but now largely forgotten 1971 solo LP If I Could Only Remember My Name — jazzed with the proggy propulsive drive of Annie Haslam andRenaissance.

The Aquarian Weekly

The first volume of Abbie Barrett & The Last Date’s series of Triples shows off the range in talent of both the singer and her band.  Whether you want to jam out to “Here To Stay” or sway and bask in the romance of “Draw Me In,” Abbie Barrett & The Last Date provide it.
