Fresh off the release of her first full-length album, Just the Beginning, 14-year-old wunderkind Grace VanderWaal is also winding down her first tour. After winning the 11th season of America’s Got Talent, VanderWaal’s career as a musician skyrocketed, with Simon Cowell going so far as to label her “the next Taylor Swift.” VanderWaal’s impassioned lyrics showcase a maturity far beyond her years; she tackles complicated issues with aplomb as her raspy, warbling voice undulates around each syllable. Just the Beginning is a big improvement over VanderWaal’s monotonous EP Perfectly Imperfect. It sounds like a complete product, and while it’s not entirely acoustic, it has a stripped-down feel to it. The hip-hop infused track “So Much More Than This” has a simple beat, but it explodes with sound when the chorus hits. The entire album keeps VanderWaal front and center, a place she’s likely to stay for some time
