Advance Praise for Suit of Hearts
Dramatic, cliff-pondering folk-rock. It’s a triumphant, feel-good record wirh wistful music to match – Chris Riemenschneider – Star Tribune
Intimate and unguarded, the songs on “Suit of Hearts” transform sad memories into happier moments. Erik Thompson – City Pages
“Suit of Hearts” is the sound of an artist simultaneously growing and in full bloom, and it’s exciting to hear. Jim Walsh
The songs on the album deal with sadness and regret, but when you listen, you hear a woman also finding strength and opening doors to a brighter future. Colleen Cowie – Minnesota Public Radio
Suit of Hearts, the title song, has the biting irony of a Lily Allen, the key change of a Brandi Carlisle and the unique almost falsetto voice of Katy. The lyrics speak to the everyday hero, carrying on and both appreciating the heroes around us and within us. Ann Treacy – Mostly Minnesota
