For your ear pleasure...

Thank Buddha the week is over. The deadline was yesterday so I can relax for the weekend. And how do I do that you might ask? Well with you of course! So grab a cup of tea - be it long island, milky or both - and sit back as I start the relaxation process by taking you with me on a little musical journey that will drop your jaw and jump start your heart, girl power style... These women are what I call FREAKS OF NATURE. They are in my artist category of being raw, real and refined (well, perhaps the last one isn't exactly 'refined' but she makes up for it in being the most raw and real of all!). The common theme you will see in these first 3 videos is that they are a one-woman band, starting with the gorgeous KT Tunstall...

Isn't she fabulous? That song always gets my feet going. My French readers will know this next one. And although I have heard rumours that her ego is a little oversized since she hit the big time, remember that she is Parisian (hehehehe) and plus that is just a rumour, I have not seen evidence of it although I could imagine it. Her album, Le Fil is a killer - I bought it a year ago and still listen to it from beginning to end. A self-taught musician, check out what she can do with her voice...

Next up is another beautiful French singer, this one perhaps takes herself a little less serious than Camille and in saying so, takes us straight to the Scottish Highlands. Welcome to the (blog)house stage, Anaïs...

And I cannot leave you without this from my absolute favourite female singer of the moment: the incredible Sia... and not just because her name rhymes with Pia. I bought her album a couple of weeks ago called, 'Some People have Real Problems' (oh I could not agree more!!) and I cannot get enough of this album. Although this video is not in line with the above one-woman shows, just take a look at the ease of her abilities here as she sings live on radio, dressed in a daggy t-shirt and no bra by the looks of it (oh us Australians, soooo uncouth!) She obviously came out of the womb with this voice, and she is a complete nutbag which makes her all the more charming. The first 15 seconds of this clip is the remnants of the previous recording so just stick with it. Take it away Sia...

Hope you enjoyed this as much me, I'm ready to start my weekend now...
