She may hail from Canada, but her
sound is right out of Nashville. Suffice to say
she's got the Folk/Americana/Country sound down pat and
has the talent to make the most of it.
What sets Kyllonen apart from others is the simplicity
with which she showcases the music. Her strong yet
wistful voice is the main instrument on these tracks,
never overwhelmed by complex instrumentation or too
slick production. Think of a cleaner, less fussy musical
version of Lucinda Williams and you'll be on the right
By Nancy Dunham, Indie-Music
"Pauline's melancholy sounds bring Chris Isaak to mind,
and they are the kind of tunes to listen to when sipping a
cold beer or glass of white wine, most certainly on a balcony
somewhere, alone, to immerse yourself in the images and
emotions her songs conjure up."

"It’s only a short EP, 4 songs, but this is one of those
releases where a listener can discover a great deal. Kyllonen
has a warm and intimate honey-smooth voice and sings with a
melting ease. Even when she’s rocking out in “Unlucky”, there
are no shrill bits; it all seems so effortless."
