Miss Emily Brown
Her new album "In Technicolor" features songs written as part of her Canada Council for the Arts sponsored songwriting project: reclaiming family stories and found-poetry from women’s WWII journals. I think it's great. Check out this vimeo video from her site to see what I mean.
The album isn't available yet, so I bought "Part of You Pours Out of Me" from CD Baby instead. I've been wondering what the best way to pay artists is, and I've seen lots of online retailers lately. After reading this www.downhillbattle.org/itunes, I decided that iTunes probably isn't all that great for artists. And it seems that many artists can't get on iTunes without a middle-man like CD Baby, so I figured why bother with iTunes and bought straight from them.
