"Kangarouge is a Bay Area based music collective lead by the young, yet sophisticated, vocals of Abby Frenes. The debut self-titled EP is a collaboration of guest artists under Frenes’ creative direction. Kangarouge’s multitude of diverse writing partners produces an eclectic range of styles bound by the common themes of harmonies and melodic narrative. The combination of Frenes’ natural power vocal and lyrical hooks has evolved into the true trademark of Kangarouge."
-Kim Nieva, Engine House Records (2011)
"The EP features all the right elements for good indie folk fare: solid hooks, decent production, a voice that I can get lost in. But there’s something extra there, too, that unnameable factor that makes me want to purchase a coffee house specifically so I can invite Kangarouge to play there."
