"Very organic, soulful folk-rock with prosaic lyrics"
"Her music is moody alternative folk, in the vein of an acoustic Patti Smith, PJ Harvey or Fiona Apple. She just released a 12-song CD, Wake, that is tender, bluesy and emotive."
"She's an old soul in her twenties with an authentic, fresh new sound and well-crafted lyrics. Her voice is both warm and edgy, providing a full range of emotions. Her melodies are playful yet haunting...audiences will discover a performer that will rock them to the heart every time they listen!"
