let's hear it for the girls, again!
If Feist reigns supreme in your music library (adored her appearance on Sesame Street), these songbirds might strike your fancy, too.
Sure, Imogen wears crazy outfits to award shows, but she's an artist for goodness sake. Hailing from London, Imogen's sound is reminiscent of Björk (who also wears crazy outfits) with a nice mix of electronica. Graceful and passionate. Love that red dress, too.
Piano-playing Sara was born in California and combines intelligent, playful songwriting with melodies that sparkle. Her performance this week on Live From Abbey Road was great and revealed that she's a strong and smart young lady. Her first pop-hit was Love Song, which is not about romantic love. The inspiration behind the song came from continual requests by her record label for more songs because they were unhappy with those she had written - argh.
A true New Yorker, you've probably heard Ingrid's songs before, but you just don't realize it. Songs like Breakable and Keep Breathing have been featured on Grey’s Anatomy and Old Navy used The Way I Am in a commercial. She was criticized by die hard fans as they wanted to think of Ingrid as their own. But hey, a girl's got to pay the rent.
I added Bess after reading Stephanie's recommendation and purchased her album from iTunes. A little reminiscent of Regina Spektor. Lovely.
Have a lyrical weekend everyone!
