Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!
Anais Mitchell - 'Shepherd' (2012)
This has "americana" written all over it. It is by Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell and features on her 2012 album, Young Man in America. Her sweet voice may not be to everyone's taste but I think it is great, and that is what counts? right?
One interesting fact (although she probably has a lot more), is that her 2010 album, Hadestown, was a folk opera based on the Greek Orpheus myth based in the Great Depression. It featured Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and Ani DiFranco. Hmm.
She will be playing some gigs in the UK, to check them out via her Facebook page.
