3. This Summer (2019)
“It’s always great to hear life stories through music that’s how they come so alive.. and documentaries of songs written I adore because it shows the reals of an artist and just loved this very much”
2. The Pains Of Growing (2018)
“Not bad, overall a decent effort with good production values, though not as good as her debut album. The added bonus tracks at the end are nice, though. Favorite song is “Trust My Lonely”, thanks to that slight hint of reggae influence, which I’m an absolute sucker for. It’s actually the song that led me to get the album since after hearing it at the store, I liked it, so I went ahead and got the record. Also “All We Know” is good, has a melancholy feel to it that I like.”
1. Know-It-All (2015)
“Good vocals and solid production values helped change my perception of Canadian music as being generally weak. Starts off strong with several good songs in successive order. The standout songs for me are “Outlaws”, “Four Pink Walls”, “Seventeen”, and “Wild Things”. The weakest song is probably the 2 AM version of “Here” on the bonus tracks release; it seemed superfluous and I preferred the original version anyway which was fine on its own. “My Song” is pretty good, has a very melancholy feel to it that the rest of the album doesn’t have.”
