Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

I knew I’d like this just by judging the cover art. This is a pretty rockin’ record, but there are some slower songs, like “Cry”; which is a nice (yet still full and rich) ballad type and it’s great.

I hate to compare all female rock music to Evanescence, but it does remind me of that at times. She lists them as an influence so I’m probably not too far off. Actually it’s no surprise that I like this, as I am a fan of almost all of her listed influences. I can hear most of those influences in the songs as well.

Vocally she reminds me of Roberta Carter Harrison from the Wild Strawberries, which is a good thing indeed.

The songs are really well written and interesting. Catchy without being too mainstream-y hook-y (like how I make up words by just adding a Y to them?)

This is a great rock record. If you’re looking for something to party to this is a good choice

I feel I must also give kudos to her webmaster because her site is wonderful. It’s easy to navigate, none of that flash garbage and it looks good too. Functional and pretty, what more could you want? (the only problem is when you click on Press it’s not there, and I don’t see a bio either.)
