I have a half baked theory about talent. I think that it can't be planned, or scheduled, or expected. If you see it coming it doesn't ever come up to the hype. It always surprises you and makes you feel pleasantly surprised and gives you a good feeling. That's the way this girl's voice feels. It seems like it sneaks up on you and suddenly makes you want to go buy everything she's put on vinyl... only there's the certain sorrow that makes you fill with grief. It's like sitting and listening to Schumann's chorales and find yourself thinking that this is why they built churches: they needed them so that someone could make this music in them.

Like I said. Half baked. It's just that it is so damned beautiful.
