    I guess I came across her a few years ago on social media. It's neat to watch a well mannered kid grow into their own playing guitar and singing. I'm a fan of the person first and the music second. Since many of her videos feature Gretsch guitars I thought I'd share and celebrate the younger generations of players coming up :

    Her vocal phrasing really reminds me of Amy Winehouse. Great voice.

    Another great artist from Denmark. Cool! (Also check out Agnes Obel although no Gretsch content with her.)

    The second is a cover of Amy Winehouse so no surprise there. As someone who listens to her uploads regularly (but usually not more than once or twice) I think she's really just exploring at this point and I happen to like seeing that. She shifts her style pretty frequently. And the last year or two I've been really impressed with how much better she's gotten.
