Her new album, 21 Dayz, has a strong Joni Mitchell sense of songwriting and storytelling with a Paul Simon and Shania Twain sensibility in the vocals and overall sound. The 9 tracks explore different elements of human nature, love, and learning. She plays around with genre, from folk-rock blues in “I Put a Spell on You,” her cover of of Screamin Jay Hawkins version about doing actions and not thinking about the consequences and outcomes, to melancholic folk in “Midnight Blue,” a song about an illusion of a love and lover who can’t be touched but feels real. She utilizes her skill with the piano and acoustic guitar is stunning.
Her acoustic ballad-like song “Sunflower Child,” the video of which has garnered over 50,000 views, is dedicated to the people of the Ukraine. The sunflower is a strong and resilient flower. It can weather any storm and survive in any environment. The sunflower is a powerful symbol of staying strong, persevering, and staying positive in the face of adversity and can fit anyone at any time in any situation they are facing.
