heathenevelovesyou Have had the pleasure of seeing Abigail perform twice (the Burdock & Winnipeg house concert). Her mad harmonic skills, compelling lyrics, and hilarious stage presence make each performance something special! Favorite track: Great Survivor.

Cynthia There's something very—for lack of a better word—Canadian about this album. For me (and this is all super cheesy), the texture of the album evokes the imagery of the boreal shield and road-tripping on the TransCanada Highway and camping in the parks, etc.

Heard Abigail Lapell play in Toronto a couple months ago, and vowed to buy her album as soon as I got back to Ottawa and got paid... So here we are! Favorite track: Yellow Rose.

Jez Collins I find my daughter singing along to Great Survivor which is the sign of a great song, simple, catchy but beautifully delivered. This is a great folk album from Canada, looking forward to the next release. Favorite track: Great Survivor.
