Singer Songwriter Brenda Xu really lives up to that title - with a dedication to craft, subtle lyrics and a general sense that observers get that she is creating beauty.
She's on tour with her new album is called "Overflow", which is a follow up to "For the Winter."
She and stopped by KNBA to share some of the music she is creating, as well as reintroduce herself to the Alaskan audience. She's come in the winter, and this time decided to check out the summer scene.
She and guitarist, bassist, backup vocal extraordinaire Timothy Van Buren can be heard on KNBA's Facebook page, but to get the full experience go see the live shows in Sutton, Anchorage and Seward as they continue the tour:
