It was not always a straightforward process to get supporters on board and keep them on board and wait for things to fall in place, but well worth the wait in our opinion.

However, the songs speak for themselves, and quality and integrity of songwriting is something Horse prides herself on. Originality, too, and being unafraid to stay true to her music rather than become part of the pop music marketing machine.
