This review was originally published in June of 2018.
The lyrics here are exceptional, in the way that they are deceptively poignant, with a sharp stoicism to both the language and the melodic delivery. It's a calculated burn as Femke holds your hand, walking you through her innermost thoughts about growth and separation. Maybe it's even about coming to terms with our own humanity.
“Some words oh they draw blood
pain is a part of us
but we’ll walk through it”— Femke
It's a beautiful brew of Americana and Folk with a strong Pop sensibility, some swampy twang-guitar, and a river-rock-smooth falsetto.
Dutch native Femke moved to the USA 10 years ago to pursue her dream; in 2012 she decided to land in Nashville and start her own studio. Her song is currently featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
