"Dressner is able to paint visceral images and transport the listener to the world of the song." - American Songwriter

"...This album is low key one of the best pop releases of 2020." -Paste Magazine

“Fortunately, she’s an artist worth seeking out." - Apple Music

"Prepare to be moved, uplifted, and swept away. Coffee at the Corner Bar is extraordinary. Its emotional breadth makes it one of the best albums of the year so far, without a doubt. Exceptional." - Shire Folk

"Midnight Bus", is unsuspecting, grungy folk that wouldn't feel remiss in the songbooks of Phoebe Bridgers or Elliott Smith, but it's Dressner's own. - Pop Matters

"The album, Coffee at the Corner Bar, is excellent" - Ear To The Ground

"Dressner documents a vibrant life filled to the brim with enriching experiences, and shares these deeply introspective stories through brutally honest yet accessible songs." - Glide Magazine

"And so, here she is with her third full-length release, and, while its predecessors were impressive, Coffee At The Corner Bar is her best work to date." -

"With a palpable cynicism, Annie Dressner crafts perfect rainy day coffeehouse songs." - Americana Highways

"‘Coffee at the Corner Bar’ is something to cherish and will long remain, indelibly marked, in your mind and soul. **** " - Get Ready To Rock

"This album is a beguiling, heart-warming addition to an increasingly impressive canon of work. There is definitely something about Annie." - The Smelly Flowerpot

"...Unflinchingly vulnerable... I’ve seen reduce grown men to tears. Annie Dressner is allowed to break our hearts." - For Folk's Sake

"Dressner is a folk poet par excellence... an able auteur whose career is off to an excellent start." - No Depression

"Dressner... writes with toes in cold and warm waters, binding everything into one steady stream, cutting through a valley." - Daytrotter

"Dressner... has an assured and individual voice, sweet but strong. She reminds me a bit of Kimya Dawson and Hop Along, but they're both more whimsical, less direct. Singing about uncertainty, "I'll look for you in me" is one of the more simple and powerful lines on loss that I've heard in a song." - For Folk's Sake

'"Another lovely lady... bringing with her a healthy slice of Americana twee. Fans of Jenny Lewis will certainly go in for the cute melodies of debut album Strangers Who Knew Each Other’s Names, but that’s not the only charm lurking under the wash of sound found within. All served up to you with a decent chunk of whipped cream and banoffee pie: too much and you’ll have a heart attack, too little and you’ll turn into a bitter old hag." - Drunken Werewolf

"With a saccharine voice and an intricate musicality, her delicate sound ends up resonating like an alt-country hybrid of Jessica Lea Mayfield, She & Him, Gillian Welch, and Maia Vidal." - DIY

"Multiple listens are rewarded." - Popdose 

"American songstress Annie Dressner crafts beautiful tunes that deal with love and loss, melodic folk that lovers of the likes of First Aid Kit are sure to adore." -  Amelia's Magazine

"Annie's music is comforting and calming, a singer whose music you would want to hear in a quaint coffee shop... If you love the acoustic sound of Ed Sheeran and the femininity and voices of First Aid Kit, then you'll definitely need to get a copy of East Twenties."  - Pamplemousse

“Her music is both whimsical and melancholic, with a fantastic voice that reminds me a little of Jessica Lea Mayfield - that great combination of beauty and sadness." - Listen Up Manchester

“With a debut album full of charming pop songs that recall British bands like Camera Obscura and Belle and Sebastian as much as the American songwriters who first inspired her to write music, she could probably move to a small village in one of the less fashionable parts of Mongolia and still make a favourable impression." - Lazy Brighton

"Annie Dressner is a siren; not in a metaphorical entertainment writer speak sort of way, but in a literal, "I think she has some magic in her" sort of way." - Examiner

"Now here's a gal we can root for. A singer of plucky can-do folk-pop tunes-some electric, others acoustic-Dressner loves, loses, and wakes up in Brooklyn bars wearing painter's caps. She takes it all in stride, staying silly and sweet in a sourpuss world."
