Rebecca Martin's site
Rickie Lee Jones, a softer Everything But The Girl
A female/male folk/pop duo with some jazz tinges. Mostly softer, mellow music. Wonderful in the right mood. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Comments about live performance:
I saw Once Blue at Lilith Fair in 1997 and was impressed enough with them to go looking for their album. I think their live performance was more lively, but the album holds its own too. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Recommended first album:
Once Blue only album
Once Blue (1995)
Recommended, especially for fans of the lighter side of ecto

They appear to be from New York City...Rebecca Martin does solo vocals with few overdubs or harmony, and Jesse Harris is the other half. It's pretty much just acoustic guitar and rhythm. I definitely wouldn't call it outstanding, but it's pleasant, ranging from folky to jazzy, light but not too sleepy. Nothing innovative musically or lyrically, but she has a sort of sweet, jazzy Rickie Lee Jones-y kind of voice. I'm not even sure why I mention it, since I'd have a hard time paying full price for it, but if you like this sort of thing and have a record store that lets you try before you buy, you might want to give it a shot.

"Kisses Good" appears on the Mr. Wrong soundtrack.
