“I’ve been in this business for 40 years and when that girl walked into my office and sang me some songs, I couldn’t believe what I heard. She is the real deal”, said manager Eddie Wenrick. “She is 21 years old with 50 years of musical knowledge. She has a command of the language. I consider her a remake of one of the classic artists along the lines of Joni Mitchell.”
