Review: Vocalist Horn has been honing her vocal skills to a finely tuned level, writing songs of personal relevance and social message, and perfecting a fearless approach to improvisation and performance in general. The convergence of this drive and development has resulted in this courageous recording —filled with songs of daring musicality, emotional power, and messages of immediate relevancy.
