"[Grace Mitchell] is 16, from Portland, Oregon, and she has the musical ability of a woman who is older and wiser. Her voice is polished and powerful, and her songwriting is confident. There’s pop appeal here, but it’s deeper than the bubblegum sounds we’re used to hearing from teens who are still finding their footing. She’s only in high school, but she’s been making music for seven years—almost half of her life. And at only 16, Grace Mitchell sounds very sure that she’s doing exactly what she’s supposed to be doing."
