Last week I had the opportunity to work with Beatrice Martin of Coeur de Pirate.  She was doing multiple press interviews to promote her latest album Roses which is being released TODAY!!!

My Facebook news feed was mixed, with half of my friends adamant she had gone under the knife and the other half chalking it up to a poor…
