Her single ‘You Know it’s Christmas Time’ (recorded with Bill Shanley in Cauldron Studios) received a great review from none other than Mick Hanly – ‘’I think we have a surfeit of syrup and goo already, but when you hear ‘Eastenders’ being rhymed with ‘preggars’ in a Christmas song setting well s***!… it’s time to tune in.’’
”Her voice is beautiful, honest, and original; her style is delivered with a bit of attitude which belies her youth.” – Gary Hannon www.wearenoise.com
