“A fine collection of tunes with powerful lyrics that talk of self-determination, beating the odds and trusting in yourself. The messages are particularly strong in terms of empowerment for women but apply well for men too. The opening track ‘Fire’ is my favourite… if you like electronica and care about lyrics you will love this album.” Mike Isaacs, BMIN Director
