FEATURED ALBUM: Saltbreakers – Laura Veirs.

SaltbreakersLaura Veirs. (2007.)

Laura Veirs

“Veirs’ songs qualify as poems: careful, word-conscious, narrative, neither foggy nor overwritten, and tend to give you a take on regular life experience that you don’t quite expect.” The New York Times.

When I first listened, Laura Veirs’ voice shocked me. I’m not exactly sure why, as there is nothing outrightly stunning about it. But it’s an antithesis to the smoky-voiced girls permeating our musical society; she keeps a child-like voice with her lyrics, making more of an impact than most “mature” voices hope to.
