STARLA SMITH for Theater Week
Whether DeForest is playing in a crowded smoke-filled club or a room full of bejeweled cafe sophisticates, cost-effective executives, strident yuppies or dear friends, he is the consummate singer/pianist. Composers come to hear DeForest because he has a magical way with a lyric. Many of his beautiful ballads are his own compositions. He is my very favorite chanteur.
JOHN MICHAEL KOROLY, Fine Arts Review
If Charles DeForest were a magazine, he'd be the New Yorker. As a singer, he makes his readings of lyrics just dramatic enough to be gloriously sentimental without ever a suggestion of maudlin. His keyboard stylings have melodic sweep and flourish, matching his baritone caressings.
