KT Tunstall -- Big black horse and the cherry tree, live and solo

This is a "Songs stuck in my Head" series post, for sure.

Everyone probably knows about this lady already, but this is new music to me. Female vocalists with gravely voices turn my crank (such as Joan Osborne), as does talent. So this Tunstall lady is looking aces at the moment, tho to be honest I've only heard this song so far, and that only twice.

The video is very cool, it shows her building this song live through self-sampling.



Enjoy women who are hot with talent,

Bp

I love women hot with talent too. We should start a list of them so we can stare at the list with glee....

Talent Crushes -- that should be a whole blog post.

I'll start:

Meshell Ngdellocello
Maggie Gyllenhaal
Tilda Swinton

Saw KT on TV once, and ran out to by the first album. Very nice stuff. I love the one-woman-band performance, too, that's cool. She has a heavy Scottish accent in interviews, also way cool.

Most of my iTunes is female artists. Once on some autopsy TV show, they found an iPod. Some guy says, "Wait, I can tell a lot about a person from their songs. There are five Tori Amos albums on here, so it's a woman." I have five Tori Amos albums on my iPod.

I never knew you were a woman... amazing the things you learn years after the fact, about your internet friends.

Thanks for the link, I haven't heard her either.

I have 8 tori amos albums on mine. Not sure where that places me on the internet gender spectrum

re: the "Internet gender spectrum": mark my words. Nothing good will come from this. My tongue is already bloody with restraint.

Amazingly talented, amazingly beautiful, still.

Msherm -- your family name is allied with that of a Tank, a famous Tank -- that's pretty butch, despite the Amos on your player.

"My tongue is already bloody with restraint."

You freaking cracked me up with this, Estu. I'll be checking the links tonight.
