Eight artists I discovered at CMW 2014 - Metro Toronto "This 22-year-old singer-songwriter from Nova Scotia was voted Best R&B Artist 2013 by Halifax’s The Coast, but as far as I can tell, it’s pure pop. She’s got diva pipes for sure, so once she reins in the belting and explores the softer side of her voice, the raw soul in her will truly emerge. Her self-titled album shows promise for a potentially bright career ahead."
