I don’t expect to do many music articles in the current state of readymix rock, let alone plugs for myspace. This is the woman you’d get to sing a mountain out of the way.
Like all true believers, she’s a bass player, and her voice would do credit to any good woofer on the planet. As a songwriter, she will go where others just don’t. Singing her songs as resident volcano with Concrete Blonde, her work grew like a tree. For sheer vocal power, she’s music’s answer to nuclear weapons. Her versions of other people’s material are also unique. The real seminal work for Concrete Blonde was “The Bloodletting”, including the monumental “Tomorrow Wendy”, done at a time when relevance was the last thing on anyone’s minds.
As a singer, she leaves the guys for dead. Most people don’t have either the musical guts or the ability to sing like this.
