We love this girl! For such tender years, she has a quite incredible diverse portfolio of jazz tunes in her locker and sings with a passion for the music few can equal. Prune takes her audience on a hauntingly beautiful journey on every song and finds the time to showcase her band's collective talents, allowing each of them the opportunity to let their music unravel itself intertwined with her excellent vocal.
