“ ... a wishful album, showcasing love, heartbreak and those small life changing moments. The majority of the album is quiet, featuring a folk/acoustic/jazz inspired sound, with lots of piano and acoustic guitar allowing Juatco’s vocals to shine. Case in point, her soft, simple cover of ‘Early Morning Rain’.”
