    With the self-assurance of someone who began her songwriting career at just 14 while holed up in her father's home recording studio, Tristen Gaspadarek has crafted a confident, poignant folk-pop debut that never wants for hooks, and manages to undercut its sing-songiness at every turn with unflinching lyrics and mature songwriting.

    Her music remains light with playful rhythms, but she keeps her songs controlled as if they were on a string, as well. If you're feeling brave it's a good listen for a quiet evening at home, but Tristen's study of the heart may be far too honest for some.

    The basic mastery of these songs, the way they skip between styles and voices, while maintaining a strict level of lyrical and vocal quality, is a great accomplishment in itself, especially on a debut.

    Her addictive debut is full of such moments: catchy refrains with multiple meanings, ear-tugging melodies with hidden hooks.
