‘She writes the sort of songs you want to pin the lyrics of on your bedroom wall, or on the office door, to remind you and everyone else who might read them what is important and true’  – Buzz Magazine

‘She’s an effervescent charm-bomb of a performer, even alone with an acoustic guitar... “We’re getting standup and music,” a woman next to me said.’  – The New Yorker
