hear her calling, don’t go home
People say singer-songwriter’s are a dime a dozen these days. People that only we know, and who still use phrases like “a dime a dozen.” Well, those wholly real, not-made-up people are totes wrong. First, because this singer-songwriter isn’t just a singer-songwriter, but a whimsical, beat-driven singer-songwriter and so-called “folktronica” artist. Second, because that aforementioned metric would value singer-songwriters at 0.008 cents, and we’re getting way more than that for ours. Selling them, we mean.
On the singer-songwriter black market we’re not supposed to accidentally revea—oh. Whoops.
