I never liked her because she named her first "get away from me" as a responce to the Norah Jones hype (her album was named "come away with me")

But she was recently dumped from columbia because she wouldn't trim her new 23 track cd down to 16. Upon being dumped she was quoted as saying "I ain't gunna work on Maggie's Farm no more"

Now I think i'll become famous, not only to punch James Blunt in the face, but also to date her. Such defiance, such passion, but I guess the real question is; is her music any good?

Ok well I did my own research after no one responded. This is certainly original stuff. I mean sure, theres alot of Jazz here from the 30's/40's but there is flammenco guitar behind jazz piano, with tango rhytham, and a symphonic backing.

Broadway vocal stylings, socially concious lyrics, she raps, plays amazing piano.

I'd recommend listening to something but im still deciding myself, I'll get back to you.

I like her, from what i have heard from Get Away From Me, shes pretty talented, and her music is very original and unique, though i do sense some Bjork influence.

So I checked her out and came across "Manhattan Avenue". Have you heard this song? But then, I heard "Baby Watch Your Back", it's almost like day and night between the two songs. But, definitely want to hear more songs that sound like the former.
