Someone's described her voice as sounding like that of a child's and, I have to say, I thought it was pretty accurate! It's still very interesting to listen to so I don't think it should be taken in a negative way. Just like the myriad of other differently sounding artists like Bowie and Kate Bush, it helps make her stand out.

i'm so glad there's a thread on her, albeit one that hasn't received any attention in over a year!

gotta say, i can't get over this woman. i agree that she sounds a bit like a child, but i also think she kinda looks at the world like a child does, and describes it with the vocabulary and elegance of someone who's been alive for 500 years. i'd actually never heard of her until this past summer. she just randomly came up on a cocorosie radio station i'd created on jango... i was inking that mandala that i posted in the art thread actually. it was her song Emily. i probably listened to it 40 or 50 times during the process of inking that art piece. ugh... i can't describe her... it's like she just makes me completely abandon any desire to intellectually approach her work and personality... it's just so beautiful to be present for the experiencing of someone so okay with themselves.

Default Joanna Newsom

Joanna Newsom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Does anyone here like her? I enjoyed her album called Ys, but havent got to check out the 2 other albums she released though. She talks a lot in the songs, which is something I kinda like.

Created in 2005....but no problem, this thread can be locked if the moderators want to. I'll go post in that thread now.

I love Joanna Newsom's voice. She also talks a lot in the songs, which is something I really like, and its pretty reminiscent of rap in my opinion too. She's also a great harpist too. Anyone else agree with me about these kind of things?

At first I wasn't into the voice but hot dang, I'm so on board with it that it's crazy now. There's real soul and emotion in the voice in a lot of the songs, it's insecure and fragile but wise and strong. I don't hear a female harpist putting on a weird voice, I hear a unique storyteller who emotes these incredibly vivid folk tales just using her vocal timbre and the pluckings of her harp.

I can definitely understand people not liking her voice but I'm past that now, I absolutely love it. And her.
