GUEST,S.T.M What makes these singers so special? (21) RE: What makes these singers so special? 20 May 11

Rob, thank you very much, it's always nice to hear encouragement. I'll try not to be so apologetic about my singing, but sometimes I just feel so silly because I know that these stories, as I view them, have really strong stories that deserve to be told, and I just feel I can't quite do it yet...but they only way I will be able to is if I just keep trying. But anyway, thank you. I haven't forgotten you guys either, but I crashed my car the week after I came to that singaround, so I couldn't go anywhere far away, and now I am mainly living up in Sheffield. But I do hope to see you all again!

Gail, I do have to agree with Eliza. I had never really heard of her (well, I had heard of her, obviously but I never bought a CD...not sure why really), but I did eventually buy two this year and have fallen for her voice head over heels. But I only heard her live for the first time last week, at the Spiers and Boden 10th anniversary gig (they really did spoil us with the line up). I thought she was great, and I really love her post-baby voice- deeper and richer, a lot like Norma's I thought, but still with that lovely quality and warmth. Her tone reminds me a lot of Sandy Denny actually. And I have to agree- "genuine" is a great word to describe her singing, I think. Someone you may like if you enjoy "genuine" singing is Fay Hield.
