***
I will say that for her age, she appears to have really cool taste in music. And even also, she's a strong vocalist. However, it's really hard not to call to question the fact that 10/11 songs on here are covers, and most of them aren't obscure enough to get away with it. That other track on the album does, with the rest of the songs solidify that she does have her own sound. She has potential, but still a lot to prove.
***
She likes great songs, but did she have to make most of them sound so crap? She does have a decent voice, perhaps the problem is that these songs were not designed for it and it just doesn't work. I'm much more interested in her piano. I guess I'm interested to see what she comes up with next, but based on the one original song on here, I shouldn't be.
*****
YES 10 of her 11 songs from her debut album are covers BUT they are obscure to commercial listeners; so she gets away with it. For example Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes and Phoenix are played on Triple J a bit.

But the one thing I am amazed at is her age... SHE'S ONLY 16! And she's a damn amazing vocalist and pianist who has a bright future.



****
I think it's difficult doing an album of mainly covers because you are constantly comparing these to the original and you (well I) and up not being able to enjoy the music as much as I normally would. Skinny Love, People Help The People and Without A Word were nice, but I wish she had more instrumentation throughout the album instead of just piano and voice. It's nice once in a while but not in the whole album. Her voice is not as developed as it will eventually be. Decent album.

3.7/6
