    Give Me One Reason

     I love her voice it's got such a great sound. kinda raspy and smooth at the same time it's wonderful. My favorite is still give me one reason. It came out at a strange time for me and it really helped me deal with some things.

    Fast Car This has been a favourite of mine

    for years. Sung in a simple understated way that makes the impact that much greater on her audience. I was in a food court this morning, escaping the heat, when a light, poppy version was played on a nearby radio. I was aghast that someone would deliberately mangle the tone...

    Her Voice Is So Real...

    If you have never heard her, please go to my blog and check her out. She is one of the true iconic female singer/somgwriters of my time. Each of her song tells such a moving and relevant story for all women out there.

    Don't Know All Yet

    But what I hear I love. I listen to her since I was 13, but I really got hooked when "Telling stories" released. I love this mix of sounds, genre, the rhythms, the voice. I don't know all the melodies, but definitely one I'd listen everything of. There's one song I like...
