It's a savory mix of effortless songbird vocals, some deep production design, and the effervescence of a poet's heart served over jazz chords.

The confessional voice, the sharp insights, the simple honesty, this is such a refreshing sound for a new artist. I hear some intonation that reminds me of Natasha Bedingfield but the treatment is more folk and less pop, less sugar and more salt.

It's a savory mix of effortless songbird vocals, some deep production design, and the effervescence of a poet's heart served over jazz chords. The sunrise is normally just a symbol of rebirth, but sometimes it also serves as a hard stop for something too good to last. Hattie Briggs, with her new single Say Goodbye, puts a story of love and longing out for display, and dresses it with lush vocals and the habit of tenderness.
