Ellen writes poignant songs with appealing lyrics. It is about time that she gets the appreciation in our country that she deserves for this strong record.

She has found her voice and sound.

Her training as a classical acoustic guitar player allows her to colour her compositions with sharp eye for detail. Her storytelling capabilities turns the mainly autobiographical lyrics into songs with universal appeal. Melancholy and resilience are both trying to get the upper hand. There is no clear winner, which is just as well. Real life does not do Hollywood endings.
