nice things people say...

"Durwood is like a throwback to one of my favorite singer/songwriter duos, the Indigo Girls in concert with a gorgeous, fresh sound that is modern and all their own. Golda's strong, clear voice mixed with Gertie's deep timbre produces a beautiful, rich harmony that makes you stop and swoon. Their songwriting is personal, poignant, fun, and simply lovely. i love Durwood and want more!"
-- Traci Kato-Kiriyama, Founder/Producer with Tuesday Night Project, www.tuesdaynightproject.org

"When I heard that two members of Boo Boo Kitty had spun off to do some of their own work, I had no idea what to expect. And then I heard them perform. Gertie Meza & Golda Inquito continue to do what they do best - form like a two-headed Voltron with vocal harmonies and a seemingly simple acoustic set up... Don't get it twisted, these ladies got enough gumption to make you shut up and listen. You can't help but give them your full attention."
-- Phloe Pontaoe, Producer, 3rd Annual Chinatown Nite 'N Day Music Festival,
Los Angeles, CA

"Love Durwood! Just love them. When you're in the mood for amazing harmonies and heart breaking lyrics, just spend an evening with this band. Either curled up on your couch or out on the dance floor, this band will deliver!"
-- Christine Keiko Agena, Founder, Mango Pop,
Los Angeles, CA

"Durwood's music is a mixture of ethereal ecstasy and pitch perfect sound. The blend of the instrument with the two vocals reminds me of what it would be like to be in heaven. Golda Inquito and Gertie Meza make it so easy for us to listen to them."
-- Giovanni Ortega, Artistic Director, MEZÇLÃO

Gertie met Golda when they were in the band Boo Boo Kitty. Here's what some folks had to say about that project:

"[We] can't thank [BBK] enough for changing up the vibe and ending our fest on such a high, positive note! You folks were !@#$ing amazing! The sound guy came up to me and was like 'They are my favorite band this whole weekend.' I can't help but concur."
-- Phloe Pontaoe, Producer, 2nd Annual Chinatown Nite 'N Day Music Festival,
Los Angeles, CA

"Boo Boo Kitty is badasskittylicious - full of spunk and heart with gorgeous melodies and lyric! Our audience always looks forward to their regular performances at our venue and the Tuesday Night Cafe Project is grateful to have this yummy band on board as one of our resident-artist bands."
-- Traci Kato-Kiriyama, Founder/Producer with Tuesday Night Project, www.tuesdaynightproject.org

"I've been lucky to have produced [BBK] on many levels. They have a heavenly blend of vocal harmonies with acoustic instrumentation."
-- Glenn Suravech (aka "Mosaic"), Independent Producer/Engineer, Mosaic Sound Recordings (MSR), Los Angeles, CA

"Boo Boo Kitty - I love the name, the people in the band, and the awesome music. I can always count on them to put a smile on my face whenever they perform. And, Boo Boo Kitty is not bitty like a kitty but they're more like a lion that just ate but is still looking for some dessert."
-- Ryan Suda, Owner & Creator, Blacklava , Gardena, CA
