"I hope this lovely young artist will keep writing and singing, and not let any dismissive words hinder or undermine her. "

So do I. But If you're not prepared to accept any realistic criticism, don't ask for opinions on boards like this.

There are quite a few excellent young singer/songwriters around at the moment. Lucy Ward, who got into the finals of the BBC Young Folk Musician Awards, is brilliant. I got a myspace friends request today from a 15-year old who is also excellent (sorry, can't recall her name offhand). There are several who go to our folk club. That doesn't detract from the talent of the yong lady here, but she is definitely not alone. Stop being so defensive - it won't help her.
