"Talena Bricker’s style will be welcome to many of our readers. She is a contemplative singer songwriter with command of the acoustic guitar. Her lyrics are often poetic and thoughtful. Drowning is an interesting album that is worthy of your listen...This album shows a thoughtful songwriter. In a world of so many toe-tapping pop songs from singer songwriters, it’s nice to have this kind of thoughtful reflection on each track."
Check out the rest of this album review from Ear To The Ground.
Check out Talena's blog post for Adventure for Women Outdoor Retreat, where she discusses stage fright, insecurity, motivation, and connection.
"Talena Bricker weaves sadness into serenity in new single, 'From These Cliffs'. There's a solemn and reverant tone to the song, as Bricker's captivating vocal spills vivid poetic lyricism amongst delicate and consoling arrangements."

Check out From These Cliffs on Ear To The Ground's "short but sweet folk playlist":
"This sweet, subtle folk style is well balanced for the ear. The acoustic guitar just glides from line to line, providing a beautiful basis for the lead vocal. The great thing about Bricker’s vocal is that she doesn’t try to do too much, but it doesn’t feel understated either. It just nestles expertly into the string work, like a bird into its nest. This is a fascinating track full of natural imagery and a comfortable vibe."
"Talena’s mellow vocals harmonize beautifully with subtle guitar in a way which will give you chills." Check out York Calling's feature on From These Cliffs.

“Following in a similar vein of Agnes Obel, there's a wonderful, transfixing tone to Bricker's voice on 'Drowning' - making the vocal delivery and darkly poetic lyrical themes of loss, longing, regret and deep sadness, as evocative and poignant as the song's shuddering instrumentation.”
