Short story

A friend (hi, Miriam) recommended Brandi Carlisle's album The Story last week, and I've been playing it over and over since I got it.

Here's the title track:



Her voice is an unusual mix of strength and vulnerability. When her voice cracks going into the chorus about two-thirds of he way through, it just kills me.

(Album was produced by the always-dependable T-Bone Burnett, by the way.)

Thanks for the recommendation. After watching the clip, I had to go to YouTube and watch all of her other clips too. Amazing voice. I hate that I hadn't known about her BEFORE now. Gotta catch up..

You haven't missed too much--I think this is only her second full-length album.
