Musician for the day

My nod today goes to Madeleine Peyroux, from New York. One of my old roommates heard an interview of her on NPR one day a few years ago, so we looked up some of her songs, and I gotta say I was impressed. She sounds kind of like a white Billy Holiday, a bluesy/jazzy sound, which I dig. Sure, she's on a big label, and has had a song in a commercial, so it's not like she's some underground recording artist, or someone that few people know about. But I'm feeling like listening to her today, and I thought that maybe I could have other people join me in my enjoyment. She's got a nice, relaxing sound, perfect for listening to while doing the morning crossword or having lunch, or just hanging around, listening to music. So enjoy, have a great day.

She does a neat cover of "between the bars" by Elliot Smith. Here's "a" video, but it's not "the" video. I think it's just a fan-made one.
