"....the lingering atmosphere and tone running through the disc’s 8 songs were comforting and warm as I trekked through the artsy areas of the legendary California town. Gianna’s songs are delicate and somber, yet hopeful. She channels the spirits of early Joni Mitchell (on the instrumental “thinking with fragility”) and contemporary P.J. Harvey (“better wait”).
Mastered at Bova Sound and mixed at The Gallery Studio, many of Ottawa’s finest artists and musical craftsmen have had a hand in the making of this disc. The production is exquisitely honed by Arturo Brisindi (My Dad vs Your Dad) along with the inimitable, Dean Watson. Renee Leduc adds sporadic touches of violin throughout. The solemn moodiness of fist in a heart permeates even on up-beat songs like “the war of love and numbers” with its quick-sand marching back beat. It conveys that surreal feeling you get walking on those long moving sidewalks in airport terminals. Don’t you love those things?!" - Anne-Marie Brugger for !earshot online
