Hard call—while she's not exactly unique, she's not quite like anyone I can think of, either
She has quite a sharp voice, which some people will like more than others, but what most people will like her emotive, catchy way of singing and her songwriting. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Not Quite So Low is the only one we've heard
Not Quite So Low

Daniel Wise, Jon Wolfson, Alan Friedman, Tim Bright
An uneven one for me, as this tends toward sounding a little country-folkie for my tastes. I discovered her through someone mentioning her mp3.com tracks, and I think those are the best on the disc. I really like her song "I Don't Think So", about abuse—it manages to tell a story rather than being simply didactic as so many songs about issues are, and I like a couple of others quite a lot, too, but others I can live without.
