This is rock 'n roll played with passion and skill." -Kerry Doole, FYI Music News

«Dreamy twang one minute, driving folk-rock the next, followed by flawless forays into underground punk-psychedelia and blissed-out, guitar-fuzz ballads.» «Complete and fully realized… a wildly accomplished debut.» — CBC Music
https://cbcmusic.ca/first-plays/799/first-play-q-a-long-branch-found-the-setting-sun

«A versatile set of musicians that are equally happy with twang as they are experimenting with jazz-like time signatures.» «Hooks you can hang a hat on»
-Adobe and Teardrops (blog featuring voces of LGBT and POC artists)
http://adobeandteardrops.com/2018/06/long-branch-found-setting-sun.html

«A haunting and often heavy form of Canadian roots rock. There is a distinct whiff of pine smoke to their sound, but they separate themselves from too much familiarity with a triple guitar wall of notes and a beautifully elastic and driving rhythm section. Four voices provide plaintive close harmonies and drift through the thick, often grungy sound — think CSNY transplanted to 90s Seattle» -Ottawa Show Box

Alexandra's work is a reflective act; she wrote the songs on Luna after the sudden death of her mother. Her musical narratives explore caves of loss and grief with rare openness. But Alexandra's music is full of lightness too- with tracks like Every Winter allowing room for us to fall in love and somehow laugh at life. When not writing she finds joy in the little things- walking in High Park, taking baths, reading mystery novels and eating candy. In this way, she is well versed in the joys and trials of life. Her music brings something rare and powerful to the table: wisdom.
