Editorial Reviews


Truly an arresting talent, able to gain entry to places rarely imagined by most songwriters. --Paste Magazine

As low-key as an almost empty room with a subtle wash of translucent dusty rose paint on the walls, Thirteen Stories does nothing to jump out and grab your attention. Instead, it sits back on its heels, confident that you will notice its merits if you are worthy of them. --splendid

Great artists like Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake are instantly recognizable by the emotional grasp of their lyrics and tempered singing. Cohen was a poet long before he became a singer, and Drake was a young man whose sensitivity and creativity forged a stunning collection of successive albums. Robert Deeble mimics neither Cohen nor Drake, but his efforts to realize special combinations of voice and plot sound like early works by the aforementioned Canadian and Briton.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have to be in the mood for Deeble. His muse doesn't flit or buzz or sting, it floats lazily like a burning ember billowed by the rising waves of heat. With the lyrical spirit of a (down)beat poet and affable but often lonely acoustic music Deeble plies sympathetic songs about various characters. His melodies, dappled light dispersing over a cool stream, please the ear modestly in the moment but evaporate within the next beats of silence. The songs don't differentiate much from one to another and mostly due to a few of his vocal emphases.

"Thirteen Stories" contains 12 songs, and there aren't many better ways to fall asleep in the warm afternoon sun on a grassy knoll than to listening to this tranquillizing tunesmith. 3.5 stars.

***Buyer's Alert*** Amazon has a thirteenth track listed titled as "Travels With John" (bonus film). I've not found this listed on my CD and haven't gotten any video prompt. As far as I can tell there's nothing but the 12 songs. I've looked to see if there are two versions of this CD but I haven't found that to be so and I bought my copy through Amazon so buyer beware: expect to get only the 12 music tracks. With a CD titled "Thirteen Stories" I did expected to get thirteen offerings but perhaps it was a play off of that thirteenth story being omitted in highrises and so here? I dunno. But if you purchase and find the thirteenth "track" please let me know how you accessed it. Thanks.
