Ezza Rose // Anna Hoone

"Her music, previously built on gentle, minimalist melodies and eerie harmonies, takes a different tone on her new LP. More electrified and slightly more ominous than the simple, lilting sound she previously established, this is Rose at her best so far. Highlights come in the laid-back, doo-wop swing of "Tie Me Up," the rolling electric guitar on "Under Your Teeth" and the deep, scissoring cello that breaks up the easy flow of "Sailboat Land.'" -Willamette Week
"Portland's Anna Hoone delivers the kind of straightforward folk that comes bristling with poetic barbs. Hoone's recent NPR Tiny Desk Contest video submission for her song "Oh Mama" saw her deft acoustic strumming accompanied by Sam Vogt's dobro. Hoone's voice is a vessel of poise and of prose-heavy lyricism that recalls the melodic grit of songsmiths like Lucinda Williams." -Portland Mercury
