Crafting a unique, unexpected blend of styles, her sharp, moving songwriting captures listeners from the first note. Today (1/22), she shares a new EP, "The Songs I Sing When No One Is Listening." A collection of stripped-down songs, the 5-track project was written and recorded during quarantine, in solitude out in the Australian Bush.
