The music I’m listening to these days…

I recently received a post prompt asking “What kind of music are your listening to these days?”  It’s funny that you should ask.  I recently stumbled upon an artist whose voice has depth beyond her years.  While listening to her sing there is a strangely familiar feeling mixed in with her soft sultry style. 

It is almost as though her voice stirs memories of a forgotten time.  Maybe my Mother listened to music similar to this when I was growing up.  I am not exactly sure how to explain it except that it feels like HOME.

Madeleine Peyroux began performing on the streets of Paris. Then she spent several years traveling and performing around Europe.   Her first CD Dreamland was released in 1996.  And almost immediately she gained widespread attention and was compared to the likes of Billie Holiday and Bessie Smith. 

Her hauntingly familiar style of music is soothing to my soul…
