i've been appreciating her music since beautiful sleepyhead and the laughing yaks came out in 2007. her voice is one of my favorites and the way she mixes classical music with hip hop beats is genius. i've seen her play live once, it was everything i thought it would be and more. i met her after the show and she was as kind as she is talented.
she liked my tattoos.
it was a good night.
she's playing this wednesday at mississippi studios for $10, $12 at the door. if you live in portland, you should go.
you'll be glad you did.
