Remy Reilly is only 14, but when you hear her sing, you wouldn't know it. This middle-schooler writes all her own tunes, and judging by the sounds of her first and self-titled EP, she has a long career ahead of her. Whether she's singing about a relationships she says she's never been in or just an everyday crush, Reilly seems to have songwriting figured out. When you see her perform, she's either sitting behind the mic backed by a band or she's playing the piano, letting her lyrics stand on their own. "I'm not a thrown-off girl, you know I rule this world," Reilly sings in "Rattlesnake," and you know what, we've come to believe it. -- Paige Skinner, Dallas Observer
Remi Reilly performs at 1:00 pm on Sunday 2 September
