Own, co-writes songs, occasional traditional cover
She has a strong voice, and her songwriting, while not incredibly distinctive, is good. She certainly can handle a range of musical styles. She seems almost to push her voice á la Boo Trundle, even in the softer, slower songs—and she really belts it out in the rockier tunes. Good energy—I think she'd be great live. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Wide on release; now cut out and hard to find

I've had it for a few years, and got it at a cutout bin too. I only like a couple of songs on it, and then, only faintly. (email@example.com)

I really, really, *really* like that album. Every song on it is damn good and it's majorly eclectic, every song is different. The more I listen, the more I like, it's all over the place style-wise, but I think every song is very good to great, and I also tend to listen to it for long periods of time, at a time. I have her first album, and I liked a few songs on it, but it was too uneven. This album isn't uneven at all, in my opinion. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
