Alli rogers. I love this girl. Seriously. I was introduced to her when the Addison Road album came out. She co-wrote a song with Jenny, the Lead singer, one of the best songs on the record, What do I Know of Holy. She also writes a blog i frequent: allirogers.blogspot.com
Addison road- if you have read my blog before you know that i love these guys/girl. I was able to spend time with them this past feb. and they are amazing people!
Francesca Battistelli – This chick has a great soulful voice. She can easily hold her own among natasha bedingfield and others.
jj heller- Amazing, amazing vocalist! I can’t wait to listen to more of her music.
I cannot say enough about her! She is running a great sale on her albums 6 for $50!
jenny & tyler. This is a husband/wife duo. They have great lyrics to go with amazing vocals. Check out their website by clicking on the Photo. if you like their music, go to Noisetrade to pick up their entire cd as a free download.
Jason Gray. This guy is not a newbie to the Music industry, and i wish i could have found him earlier!
His cd all the lovely losers is amazing! Grace and the cut are my definite favorites 🙂
Kendall Payne. I have two of her five cds, which are really good. The tracks on both of them are diverse, with some very beautiful lyrics
That’s it for now, I tried to not double up on people that i have already written about in my monthly cd review, but some of these i just couldn’t pass up!
My favorite Books of 2008 will be posted tomorrow!
I’m starting a monthly tradition. I will take my favorite albums/artists that i’ve been listening to and let you guys know. (Maybe you can tell me your favorite too!)
I will also do this with the books I’ve read that month.
Jon Foreman Fall & Winter eps (just the fall disc, i’ll save the winter for closer to the season… as in tomorrow)- Easily one of my favorite singer and songwriters. Great stuff!
JJ Heller Painted Red i have had this cd for less than a month and have listened to it over 30 times. With an ipod packed with nearly 4,000 songs I know she’s good 🙂 She reminds me of Sara Groves and the lead singer of Addison Road, Jenny Simmons.
Alli Rogers You and The Evening Sky I actually don’t have this cd, but Noisetrade has a compilation of her songs. She’s a fantastic singer and her songs are amazing!
Joy Whitlock God and a Girl This chick has a seriously passionate voice. Kinda reminds me of mix between Jennifer Knapp and (CBD.com says and i agree) Kendall Payne with a bit of KT Tunstall.
Downhere Ending is Beginning I love downhere’s music they have songs that I just keep coming back to and discovering all over again. I would also recommend Wide-eyed and Mystified by downhere.
Jenny & Tyler A Prelude I’ve been really excited to find this guys through an ad on Facebook of all things. They are a Married couple from Nashville. This is an acoustic cd. I don’t have their other one but i know that it’s good!
Bethany Dillon Waking Up Honestly i’m always going to have bethany dillon playing. I’ve loved her music for a long amount of time. On this cd in particular i love You are on Our Side. Seriously amazing stuff.
Alanis Morissette Flavors of Entanglement I’ve really liked Alanis’s voice since the Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack. I don’t like straitjacket (i don’t like hearing words that i don’t say being repeated over and over) I do really like Incomplete, Tapes and Not as We.
That’s what i’ve been listening to this month. Let me know what you have!
