    With Heart-Shaped Scars, she's found a home in sparse and spooky folk. Possibly not something one could have predicted when she first arrived on the scene with One Dove, but something that is satisfying and true all the same.

    While Heart-Shaped Scars might not be the first flowering of such wistful folk mysteries, it still brings in a good harvest. [Sep 2021, p.80]

    For Heart-Shaped Scars, it’s all beautiful, gossamer strings and hushed vocals with the kind of confessional singer-songwriter lyrics that make for an intimate listen, at once chilly and warm.

    It is an album of quiet delights, but at times it feels like the songs are simply stretched too thin: three-star meals served with five-star service.

    Classy but underpowered. [Aug 2021, p.24]
