Karen Matheson of Capercaillie

Covers/own material:

Own, cowritten with Noel Dinn, and Noel Dinn's songs

General comments:

Very smooth pop. Doesn't usually hit within my radar, but her work in Figgy Duff and with Anita Best made me notice her stunning voice. If I listen to it and not the songs, I love this. Those with a more friendly relationship with smooth pop will LOVE this. (Neile)

Recommended first album:

The Collection might be a good place to start as it is a sampler of all her work, including that with Figgy Duff
