She’s the type of artist who has the ability to make an audience go so quiet you could hear a pin drop, her vocal, though delicate and sweet, holds immense amounts of power behind it. Want proof? Then just dive into the tearjerker that is Be Back Soon.
Thematically dealing with the aftermath of leaving a city, friend and family whilst knowing the times you had in this place are never going to be quite the same again.

It’s a special piece that brings everything around you back down to earth and makes you wish to go back to that time for one more day of unimaginable bliss.
