I’ll be one of the first people to admit that I’m not fond of her album. Maybe I haven’t given it time to grow on me, but “Dream” is the only song I like on it. I do however like her voice, and was curious to see what shes like live.
Would you believe that she ended up having Laryngitis?!?!
I went to hear her voice, and now I could only hear about 1/2 of what she would really sound like.
While I should have been grateful she played anyway, I almost felt kinda gypped…..but that faded pretty quick…. cuz damn, I like this girls TONE. Even without much vocal strength or range, she was GOOD.
She’s quirky, giggles like a little girl at the end of every sentence (probably just nervous), wears a flower plastic watch, plays a kazoo, and used a iphone to do most of her talking (the laryngitis). But when she sang, she grew up. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE quirky! But I can’t wait to see where this girls songwriting takes her.
She played about 5 new songs tonight. One of them she sang solo and used a “loop pedal” to loop her vocals and guitar on the chorus. The song was slow, and really RICH. Even with barely a voice, she created layers that added such a nice texture and simple complexity. Her spirit really came through during that song, and I was sold.
oh.. and I really enjoyed the other new songs too…
