"Reason" is the 2015 release from Belgian singer/songwriter Selah Sue. Four years have gone by since her debut album and she might not be over her demons but she's at least harnessed them to compose the songs of Reason, gorged with energy, light and emotion. These songs sweep you over from the first bars, coming from an artist who's at once full of life and full of scars, who always seems to be one with her guitar. "Success hasn't healed my wounds", she says. "Nothing has really changed. It's a journey, a battle that will last my entire life"
