Today is good Friday and therefore something contemplative. Karen Elson released her second album these days and for me it is a beautiful one - not only that I am delayed to good female voices. Karen Elson is Briton, model and musician. And she is also married to Jack White. The songs are centrally held with semi-acoustic guitars so that her voice can be the centre of the songs. Singing about (lost) love is not a new thing but she does it in a credible way. Although she's living in New Orleans it is not another American singer/songwriter record. In return her Manchester roots are too deep. Sometimes she reminds me to Emmylou Harris because their songs have the same tragedy and melancholy.
Happy Easter all.
