From her alluring personality to her charming songwriting, Mabes truly is beautiful in every way. Having first learned guitar at age 15, Mabes has crafted the purest folk-infused pop that we’ve completely fallen in love with.

And when is it time to walk away? Is it love? Or are we just comfortable and too fearful of the hurt if we said goodbye? What is love? At 24, maybe I’m too inexperienced to know, maybe I’m too young to love…”
