The New Mexico native, whom the Tuscon Scene dubs "Regina Spektor-esque," wrote all the songs on the album, which features a duet with acclaimed singer-songwriter Ari Hest.

Boyce began her career as the keyboardist for The Naked Brothers Band, appearing with them on The View and the Today Show, and has also accompanied Tim Williams on tour and at performances at SXSW and Sundance Film Festival.

After studying jazz piano at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, Boyce moved to New York to pursue her own sound, where she met Patrick Ermlich and Eshy Gazit at Modern Vintage Recordings.

With influences ranging from Tori Amos to Radiohead to Miles Davis, Boyce writes all of her own music. She explains, "I think there is something otherworldly about writing. A line or a melody will come out and later I'll read it or hear it and think 'this is healing me and I wrote it.'"

Similarly, it is this connection that drives Boyce's live performances, whether solo or with her band, which includes drummer Nir Z (John Mayer, Chris Cornell), guitarist Thad Debrock (Ari Hest, Jonas Brothers) and bassist/MD Eshy Gazit (The Roots, Lisa Loeb) and occasionally a string quartet.

The Daily Iowan asserts that "her voice drips soulfully against the piano as she croons lyrics of heartbreak and toil," and the Las Cruces Sun-News says Boyce is "at once poignant and playful...combining provocative, often clever, lyrics with her soulful vocals and vibrant piano playing."
