    Oh gawd, my man card's gonna be in check after this one :bag:

    So I stumbled upon this really awesome artist from New Zealand a while ago, and I just can't get enough of her. Though some may find it annoying, I for one love the sound of her voice (then again, I also like Geddy Lee's 70s screech :D)...but seriously her voice has this awesome raw element to it. Very reminiscent of Macy Gray, Amy Winehouse, etc. She's also incredibly...er...hawt :cool:

    Have you guys heard of her? I think she's been getting some more exposure lately due to some of her songs being on commercials for Lowe's, and, very recently, the latest James Bond film. Here are a few I like:

    Skyfall Heineken Ad


    Let me know what you think :bag:


    PS I'm always into discovering new music...share your guilty pleasures.

    Her new album Gravel & Wine has been released on iTunes, Spotify, etc. I didn't really like it at first but it's grown on me. Poison is an especially good song.

    Haha come outta there my friend. You're not alone, I'm such a fan of her work. So much so, that she may or may not have been in town last week. And I may or may not have gone to see her. And these may or may not be pics of the show :D
