Comments:

If you like blues-based pop/rock, this is a brilliant album. The songwriting is strong, Georgiana Trent's vocals are irresistable, and the musicanship throughout is strong. I'm not usually a fan of this style of music and this album totally won me over. An impressive debut. (sophiagurley@hotmail.com)
