Highly individual, but there's a touch of Victoria Williams, early Kate & Anna McGarrigle, The Roches
This is odd, quirky, individual music with touches of pointed humour in the tradition of Victoria Williams, The McGarrigles, and The Roches. Guessing from the style of spatial relations, I would think she would be a lot of fun live—her casual songwriting style is disarming and lyrics amusing. (email@example.com)

Kristin Cotts and Steve Schuster
Kristin Cotts has an unstudied, quirky voice, clever lyrics, and zesty songwriting style in the manner of Victoria Williams, The McGarrigles, and The Roches that many folk-lovers will find charming. My favourite track here, "You Are My Day," is an irresistable mix of energetic, twisty music that shows the best of Kristin Cox's talent for catchy, individual songs. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
