a strikingly delivered & warmly produced debut from the 17 year old North Yorkshire singer-songwriter who is rightly turning heads everywhere.

her precise vocal delivery is delicate & sweet but not sugary or watery - it in fact recalls the potency of soak or laura marling & at times ventures into joni mitchell & nick drake territory. 'Lionhearted' & ‘emily’ demonstrate everything that is special about this record - muffled drum beats, unintrusive strings, gently strummed guitar & a gorgeous vocal that all build into a wonderfully enchanting whole. These songs wouldn't be out of place on daughter's debut & share a lot with elbow's most stripped back moments too. "it isn't an excellent debut for a 17 year old. it's an excellent debut, period" - sunday times.
