“Rarely do we encounter an artist this young and so ready. Without a doubt, she is next wave, and will soon be in the company of our proudest young women upstarts of this decade: Serena Ryder, Kathleen Edwards, Rose Cousins, Jenn Grant, Hannah Georgas, Lindi Ortega, Basia Bulat and Miss Emily Brown.” - Paul Symes: Owner/Booker of The Blacksheep Inn”
