    On the Bright Side
When Lena Anderssen in 2006 became the first ever artist from the Faroe
Islands to record in Abbey Road Studio 2 – singing her seminal song
Stones In My Pocket – it led to Belgian Magazine Rootstime comparing
this Faroese/Canadian songbird to contemporary artists like Tift Merritt
and KT Tunstall while music critic Jan Janssen at Real Roots Cafe
compared Lena to vintage artists like Joni Mitchell and Patti Smith. 
Ten years on and Lena Anderssen has had an extraordinary journey so far
where she's gone from waitressing at a café in the world's tiniest capital
city, Torshavn, to being invited to Norway to perform for the Norwegian
Prince Haakon, playing for millions on live television in Poland and touring
Europe as an opening act for Roxy Music (UK), Beth Hart (US) and Xavier
Rudd (AUS).
While touring in Denmark in the autumn of 2016 following her latest
release Eagle In The Sky, highly respected Danish music critic Ivan Rod
attended one of her concerts and wrote: "Lena possesses an immense vocal
which exudes depth, flexibility and honesty...She masters the phrasing
and she can tell stories and translate them into relevant songs, which on
top are melodic, catchy and substantial...The concert proved that she both
writes and sings with an authority that is naturally associated with
artists like Suzanne Vega and Alanis Morissette."
Here's the review in Danish:
