I came across this girl after seeing her picture in my Facebook Newsfeed. A friend of mine from Seattle plays in a band and he proudly posted that she was his dream girl. Being a good friend I had to Google this girl to make sure she was up to par. I found out that she wasn’t just really good looking, in a Northwest hipster way, she was also a very talented singer/songwriter.
She’s from New York City and her first full album, Water in a Whale, was released this week. Her music and voice is reminiscent of Fiona Apple and Jar of Hearts singer, Christina Perri. You can tell from her music that she is not one of those over-produced pop singers, which leads me to believe that she would put on a great live show with music that sounds as good as it does online.
Check out the first music video from her new album.The song is called Pauvre Coeur. The title is French and even after some extreme internet searching I still have no idea what it means. If you like Jillette Johnson or speak french and can let me know what that song title means be sure to leave us a message in the comments section or on our facebook page.
