So okay, I admit it. I'm a sucker for a female singer with a raspy voice. Janis, Melissa Etheridge, even going back to Bonnie Tyler...those raw vocals where it seems their souls are being ripped out. Served up today, Canadian singer-songwriter Amanda Marshall.
The first time I became aware of Amanda Marshall was October 1999 when she opened for John Mellencamp at Madison Square Garden. She started out with an a cappella verse of "I Can't Stand The Rain," then moved into today's taste "Let It Rain.". This video has just a touch of the a cappella lick.
Huge voice backed with a lot of soul. So tasty, I'm adding a couple more links of great live performances.
"Last Exit To Eden," emotionally scarring.
"Dark Horse," love...just go for it.
Crazy weekend ahead, no guarantees for any snacks til Monday...but then again...
