A mix between Anya Taylor-Joy and a Cabbage Patch Kid with all the sincerity of a Care Bear (I’m not really sure what this means), Beeson takes us on journey of one girl becoming a woman as she learns how to move on from some who doesn’t love her back. Or at least that’s what I gleaned from her single release party over the weekend in which I went up to talk to her and after she realized I ran this website, she asked the most pertinent question many of you may be wondering yourselves: “Who are you?”
I’m always amazed when an artist so young can express their feelings so eloquently and transform it into art (going back to the song now and no longer talking about who I am). When I was that old I was still in the process of repressing all emotions for fear of being perceived as weak (BYU was a wonderful time in my life).
I first heard a demo of "Pink Light" nearly a year ago in someone's backyard at a listening party and was amazed then, but it’s something totally different now. It’s better. She got rid of the meh, kept the good, made it better, and added a whole lot of great.
Some people are growers. Others are showers, but somehow Beeson is both a grower and a shower, simultaneously showing immense talent all while still having plenty of room to grow. I can only imagine what her potential is going to be in the months and years to come.
It’s like watching grass grow but less boring. Like if the National Geographic time lapses of watching a flower bloom were shown in real time. It’s slow, but you can see the growth in real time.
And if any of what I said is wrong, remember, this same review used a metaphor comparing the artist to being a "grower" and a "shower." How reputable can I actually be?
