Read "I Sang To You And The Moon" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Vengono da Seattle e hanno meno di trent'anni i componenti di questo quartetto dalla fisionomia singolare: una cantante accompagnata da chitarra, tromba e contrabbasso. Come si può intuire dall'organico, il clima è cameristico e l'intimismo folk delle musiche di Gregg Belisle-Chi impregna tutto l'album.
