“If you are a fan of The Weepies, then you will surely love The Jinxes. This indie-folk pop duo from California, Kevin Smith and Deanna Ross, knows that song writing is not just all about poetics or heartbreaking lyrics. Sometimes, it's simply about good harmony and grounded words that remind you that love can also be pure and innocent. And sometimes, if you are lucky, all you need are seven words. Much like this lovely song by The Jinxes, 'If You Want (the buh bah song)'.”

“The title of the Jinxes’ 'If You Want (the buh bah song)' might lead one to think of it as a kid’s song or an ironic take on the traditional pop scat, but in actuality, it’s an earnest and oh-so-pretty love song sung in sparse two-part harmony between partners Deanna Ross and Kevin Smith, accompanied by tender guitar and plaintive cello."

“Damn charming, you correctly surmised after listening to the song.”— Adobe and Teardrops Blog, April 15, 2012
“The duo are definitely the perfect antidote to the current electro-pop sound of top 40 radio however, don't let that fool you as the melodies within are simplistically enchanting. They easily exude crossover potential with their raw, honest verses that rush into soaring choruses full of breathtaking harmonies and exceptional chord progression. Personally, I think this duo are incredible and bask in the fact that their music has an unintentional universal sound whilst remaining honest and genuine.”
