Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Joanna Erdos and her band play a gorgeous hue of piano-dominated music with a slight theatrical bent. Erdos has a truly stellar voice and knows how to use it.

All the Water is a moving and inspiring opener, Erdos clearly dominating the song.

End is Near gorgeously paints an image of darkness but with bright spots. Erdos makes her song one of hope.

We’re Gonna Keep You is tense and has a lovely melody. Erdos’ gorgeous vocal creeps in on you. She reminds me of Fiona Apple here.

Green Eyes is a soft, reflective ballad that’s one of the best songs here.

This is a fabulous debut by any standard.
