Authentic have wisely picked up distribution for Philippa's debut. As we observed when reviewing this as an independent, Philippa has a pleasing, slightly quirky approach to her music with catchy melodies and occasionally insightful lyrics. Production by Andy Baker is excellent too and with 10 tracks plus two acoustic bonus ones it's clear that Philippa is staking her claim to be a major force on the scene in the coming years.

I've just got in from an evening with Philippa performing some of her material at a local venue, supported by her manager and producer Andy. This is one very talented young lady. I've seen her 'live' at Spring Harvest, and heard this album, and feel she is truly answering God's call on her life. There is nothing forced about what she is doing. This is a christian artist to get behind and support.

Philippa is awesome, i can strongly recommend buying her album, and if yu can go and see her at one of her gigs. I've often heard her voice sound even better live than on her album, something very rare thse days. just a reflection of her amazing talent. she shines so brightly with the light of god too!
a true inspiration to us all.

I believe that Philippa is destined for great things, but who am I to say?! She has a great voice, and I can't believe she has penned these excellent songs.
Crazy Days is very cool and a lot of fun. You have to see the video (on You Tube), it's absolutely charming, and I mean that most respectfully.
The accoustic tracks at the end are indeed great, but I particularly like "Love Divine" - maybe I am an old softy, but there is something classic about this one. It's a beautiful emotive melody with lyrics that speak comforting words to the listener. I can just imagine Amy Grant singing this one, and hey! maybe one day, people will say that they can "just imagine Philippa Hanna singing that".
