Press

“The Meaning and The Meantime is a sincere and welcome departure from what we are hearing from most independent artists right now. Pakes is an incredibly skilled guitarist with a song-writing lexicon that approaches the genius of Ani DiFranco. This album showcases the strengths of her musicianship as a lyricist, guitarist, vocalist and poet. I hate to use the word "refreshing" but I do feel like I needed to hear this album. So do you.”
