Both fantastical and for realz – we get answers from folk musician Charlotte Cornfield 

According to the Montreal Mirror Charlotte Cornfield is “the next it-girl of folk-rock.” Without sounding wretchedly corny, she really is all that, and a bag of sea salt and malt vinegar organic potato chips. So, that means she’s tasty to us.

Writing songs.
