"…Skilful and accurate… wistful soulfulness"

John Fordham, The Guardian

Spanning a wide range of musical textures and lyrical themes, ‘La Loba’ is infused with world-wide influences, from American folklore, to stories of young children in East Berlin. These are songs about womanhood and childhood; looking for love and finding it; femininity, courage and the life-long journey towards individuation. As well as drawing luscious and vivid imagery, this new collection of songs is a celebration of all the dimensions of life as well as a call to arms - challenging the listener to stand up and find their own voice.
