DIY
An artist even more exceptional at telling her own stories than caricaturing her peersโ€™.

Pitchfork
The singer-songwriter brings a more considered levity to her full-length debut, striking a balance between heartache and resolve.

With her debut LP, Jensen McRae solidifies herself as one of the most promising and talented singer/songwriters out there, even if her sound isn’t completely realized yet.

Ever since I found Jensen McRae and her music a little over a year ago, I’ve been obsessed. Her viral Phoebe Bridgers parody-tweet-turned-fantastic-song led me down a rabbit hole of her music, just to find that she only had a handful of songs out.

Singer-songwriter Jensen McRae's debut album establishes her as one to watch. I know she's known for her Phoebe Bridgers parody and there is quite a bit of Phoebe worship on here, but I think her voice sounds more like Lucy Dacus. I also like the incorporation of strings into a lot of these otherwise bare instrumentals, for which much of the credit has to go to producer Rahki (who was the producer of Kendrick Lamar's 'Institutionalized' and 'I').
