Type of music generally:

Most recent release, A Light from the Other Side (2016)
Hard call—while she's not exactly unique, she's not quite like anyone I can think of, either
She has quite a sharp voice, which some people will like more than others, but what most people will like her emotive, catchy way of singing and her songwriting. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Not Quite So Low is the only one we've heard
Recommended if the available samples sound good to you
Lisa Richards—vocals, guitar
Daniel Wise—bass on 2 tracks
Daniel Wise, Jon Wolfson, Alan Friedman, Tim Bright
An uneven one for me, as this tends toward sounding a little country-folkie for my tastes. I discovered her through someone mentioning her mp3.com tracks, and I think those are the best on the disc. I really like her song "I Don't Think So", about abuse—it manages to tell a story rather than being simply didactic as so many songs about issues are, and I like a couple of others quite a lot, too, but others I can live without.
