Default Jolie Holland

I'm honestly inspired by her, shes got the vibe of Norah Jones (that half jazz half willie nelson vibe) and the stealthy Waits/Richards blues dagger to her style.

My favorite song is easily "Old Fashioned Morphine". For example, she took brass, easily the most aggressive instrument created and used it to make subtle accents and harmonies on a track that sounds like the earth down in the mississippi delta wrote and sang it itself. Probably one of my favorite artists around right now on the folk circuit.
