It's weird how things work...
For the last few weeks I've been trying to find some music that grabs me and I was not having much luck. Then, yesterday on a forum I read, someone started a completely off-topic 'link to uber-cute YouTube videos' thread.
Aww, aww, aww and then I click to this:
Very cute goats (aww) but I was instantly mesmerized by the music. 'I know the song but who is this singing?! What a great voice!' It turns out to be a woman named Madeleine Peyroux and I googled her and went out today and bought one of her CDs; Careless Love. I've been listening to it all day. It's wonderful.
It's very weird that I had not heard of her before because her influences are some of my favourites; Bessie Smith, Billy Holiday, Patsy Cline etc... and she's been around for a few years. I guess this should be expected when I spend a year and a half under a rock. ;-)
But, thanks to off-topic forum thread, I've found some music that really lights my fire!
And now I also want baby goats...
