Cuttings 13 - Martha Wainwright

I love her. Really, i think as a female singer-songwriter she's one of the best to emerge recently. Such honestly the vocal quality, in the lyrics - very special.
Thoughts from her gig at the scala....

>It was as though she made no effort to put on a show whatsoever - yet she was a fantastic performer... She was absolutely herself - no pretences - restarting songs if they didnt go well for her, forgetting lyrics, drinking bear from the crowd, talking bluntly about Loudon and Rufus - no secrets, no mask --- or was that her performance? She carried off her non-challance with such charm that it was almost like a well rehearsed act...
