Sarah Shafey win's "Spotlight Artist" at the 2023 California Music Video Awards for her music video for "Sticks and Stones".

- Canadian Beats

"There’s a compelling residual energy flowing through the sonic leitmotifs, providing the melody with a tantalizing field of wickedly irresistible textures and hypnotic flavors."
