Foreword ep is her debut

This debut ep is a good start. Arian has a sweet voice and she sings beautifully. "I Know what you're doing" is a pleasingly jazzy song. She even scats impressively. "This Time" is bittersweet and blue. "In the backroom" is a funky track that proves she has mastered more than one style. This is an impressive debut. (email@example.com)
