“Much like activist musicians like Joan Baez and Carly Simon, Julie sings as if there are no secrets between her and her fans. Often discussing socially charged topics such as politics, religion, women's right and mental health, Julie doesn't censor herself for the benefit of appeasing the music industry.”-Derek Jones

The combination of old school energy and classic vocal tone on this one made it an immediate “yes” for me. This is my first time learning about Lavery, but I don’t think it’s the last time we’ll be featuring this amazing voice on our site. The lyrics will have you asking spiritual, deep questions that are a bit outside of the traditions of the country vein of genres. The track kicks into more of a modern country gear later in the song, but the early contemplative folk ethos is what we enjoy the most on this one.” - Greg Jones

“The quasi-Celtic, country-tinged soundscape materialises the image: you are in a pristine woodland, perhaps just next to a cliff, living your romance away from society, perhaps hoping to hide from heaven’s judgement. Then comes her sweet yet austere voice and makes it clear she wants more.”- Fernando de Oliveira Lucio
