    I don't know if any of you know her music, but I recently bought "The Story" her latest album, and have become semi-obsessed with her :p

    I play her cd over and over again in my car, to and from work...
    and every time i think i'm sick of it, i play something else but then end up running right back to it.. like i miss it or something :blush:

    it's a great album to sing along to and the lyrics and emotion with which she sings them are sort of gut-wrenching and raw.. so great :heart:

    Here is a bio from her myspace, which also contains info about the Story, her influences and what it was like to record it..
    if you're a fan it should be an interesting read ^_^

    ok... so i know i'm pretty much the only one who posts in this thread :p

    BUT, i went to see her in concert last night (5 of us piled into the car and drove 2 hours just to see her and another 2 hours to get back home)...

    anyway, i would HIGHLY recommend seeing her in concert if you like her music and ever get the chance... :wub:

    she sounds incredible live, her voice was amazing, she performed a couple songs acoustically and one song she did completely unplugged because she liked the acoustics of the space we were in :heart:

    she was just so great... i can't even properly put it into words...
    i think i felt every possible emotion and listening to her music now is even MORE meaningful if that's possible...

    she did a few covers... a bob dylan song, a couple johnny cash songs... she did a cover of mad world... just beautiful

    anyway, i'll stop gushing but she was fantastic :D

    oh my god... i came in here to post that her new album, Bear Creek is out today (about to buy it!) and I realized that I never posted again about my concert experience when she was with Ray Lamontagne!

    The night of the concert was actually the night of her 30th birthday and it was an outdoor concert by the water the same night that we had this freak tornado, so it was quite the meteorological experience. Total downpour and lots of wind, it was really scary actually but she was great as usual. AND, she wrote a song for her new album inspired by that night! Very cool...

    Here's info from stereosubversion.com on that:

    and I also saw her twice more after that night :p

    once when she played at the Life is Good festival, and again when she did a solo show, just her on stage in Boston, which was also awesome. She's such a great live performer. Her voice just fills the space and goes right through you.

    So psyched to start listening to this album on repeat!
    (And Fiona coming up so soon too, i don't know if my heart can take it :heart:)
