My feeble words can't describe her...

Simply put, she is one of the most creative, talented, and passionate musicians today. Being a musician myself, she has been an incredible influence and inspiration to me. Her unique and somewhat experimental music draws from a very wide variety of sources, and is often extremely clever and fascinating.
