“Berry has beautiful raspy undertones to her voice that give her music a strong resemblance that of Natalie Merchant or Jewel.
Berry’s vocals are something to be experienced, and I’m sure they’re even more impressive live. There’s no doubt her new EP is going to go down in the books as a successful release.”
Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
