I don't usually rave about music. I enjoy it, but I don't generally get all enthused about any particular artists. At least not to the level that I am right now.

I've been hearing this song on the radio for a while, and I heard it again last night. It sticks in my head every time I hear it, but I'd never managed to get the name of the artist. Female vocalist, bluesy/rock, strong voice. And the lyrics that I'd caught were "big black horse and a cherry tree." So I decided to try and Google that, and see what came up. And sure enough, immediately found the artist, a woman by the name of KT Tunstall. Yes, I'm sure I'm way behind the curve, everybody knows who she is, right? Well, I didn't. And the song that I'd been hearing is in fact called "Big Black Horse and the Cherry Tree". As I'm doing more looking, I noticed that a song that I'd heard last week while I was watching "The Devil Wears Prada" that I'd really liked was also one of hers, another song called "Suddenly I See".

Next step was to look her up on YouTube. And I found this.

And here's Suddenly I See (actually playing with a full band this time): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tlU-1u1JC8&mode=related&search=

Alyse and I just bought her first album and her new acoustic album. I plan on listening to them a lot.
