What a voice this lady has, sometimes she sounds like Kate Bush, some Melanie, and Eva Cassidy, but most of all herself, in thrilling originals, and some very well done covers. Accompanied with the piano she sets a haunting, relaxing, thrilling performance where you could hear a pin drop. I believe the stories she tells are all very interesting and original. The cover songs she does, are not the easiest ones I have heard, and she gives it a special personal blend. Imagine, she gives a very beautiful touch, the Counting Crows song is brilliant, and the Janis Joplin Me and Bobby McGee is surprisingly with at the end a screaming bluesey voice. I think this treasure could easily do some blues songs too, maybe someday, she coud sing in my show some bluesey stuff. I was very delighted by her music, and if you are into original compositions, with a great voice, that only can be this woman's treasure, this album will bring you happiness and joy everywhere you go. A must have for people who like Norah Jones, Kate Bush, Melanie and Eva (sometimes).
