“Eve Decker’s music has been a source of living dharma for me. I am inspired, calmed and reminded of what truly matters when I listen to her wonderful songs.” 
Jennifer Berezan, singer/songwriter, producer, activist

“Eve’s voice singing the Dharma… reached me deeper than words have ever been able to reach. The energy I felt was a connectedness to all things. Compassion and letting go resonated deeply though my body… By adding her musical abilities to her toolkit of experience Eve Decker is an insightful Buddhist teacher and talented artist.” Janet Etter, Victoria Insight Center, Canada (Eve’s spring weekend retreat)

“Decker’s melodies, and her luscious, inventive phrasing, give her songs the power of a transmission.” –Tricycle Magazine
