"A fearless performer matching Marika Hackman's edgier singer songwriter style with Wolf Alice at their most grungy" - Music Radar UK
"The emotional resonance of Elliott Smith colliding with the barbed vigour of Sleater-Kinney" - Gigwise
Right now, the world needs a warrior. Thankfully, town by town and tour by tour, She Makes War has been widening her battle stance and soothing tortured souls with her no holds barred, peaceful protest music. Armed with songs to persuade and words that bite then linger with the sweetest aftertaste, She has a message - wake up world and Brace for Impact.
"People still live in fear of persecution and violence every day for the "crime" of being themselves," attests the nom de plume of melodic visualiser, storyteller and creator Laura Kidd. "With everything that's going on in the world, adopting a brace position to protect ourselves from external forces is more important than ever."
