"Is Simple Love a brilliant masterpiece? Absolutely."
"It’s incredible writing and composition, essentially taking all of the best bits from the classic ballad, and fusing them creatively and optimistically with this new and exciting, at times classically inspired, expression of sound and soul. The increasing intensity towards the song’s climax is hypnotic, mesmerizing, and always captivating. When it does in fact come to an end, there’s a struggle to walk away from it all – Simple Love bears listening to far more than once to truly capture what it’s all about, and to build a familiarity with it that sinks in for good."
Rebecca Cullen, Stereo Stickman Magazine
“Taking a sharp left from her dalliance with slick pop, a warm, ardent ovation to love in its purest form will pull at your heartstrings and stay with you.”
The Pasadena Independent
