“Purveyors of the four-minute popular song usually stick to cataloging one emotion. Villalobos' compositions are not quite so simple, coming off the speakers like holographic Cracker Jack surprises that reveal a new depth with the slightest shift in light. Days On Their Side (Face West Records) finds her taking the Lucinda Williams/Sheryl Crow model to a new level. (And it’s about time someone did.)

"… Proud daughter of a California that has gone astray, Chapman's working-class background and her respect for the state's oft-forgotten rural denizens mark her as a songwriter with a distinctive voice. Chapman shows a refreshing willingness to push musical boundaries, referencing muscular rock & roll, the expansive sonic textures of Wilco and the faded beauty associated with her pal Jolie Holland's torch songs. Chapman is a brave artist who appears to be poised for bigger things." -SANTA CRUZ WEEKLY.
