I like the piano. Has a clean, tight sound and tone in all your registers, but...
Hate the vocals.
Sorry.  I'm just over this kind of singing.  Ugh.
There are so many female singers aping this style, and they're all overwrought and literally indistinguishable. 
I'm not talking just about youtubers, but professional singers with what I assume are record deals.  They all have the same melismatic overkill and breathy fry in their voice.  I'm not saying she doesn't have talent.  But she's rolling hard on the same gimmicky vocal style every other singer is playing with. 
Reminds me of the highly skilled but ultimately boring shred guitar players in late 80s metal.  They played their asses off, but so what?
I can't wait until the whole fad is burned and we can hear something that doesn't immediately make me reach for the radio dial
Maybe I shouldn't post this...

I love the tone. The piano sounds great. I don't know if I would be as harsh as Student Rhodes about the vocals, but I would tend to agree. Very generic and kind of disingenuous. Just sounds like she's trying to fit in more than she is being expressive. Other than that, sound great!

Tough critics here!  I was just playing your video, and my wife, who was across the room,  asked me, "Is that Norah Jones?"  I can think of worse singers to sound like!
