Indie Artist moment: Priscilla Ahn

priscilla_ahn.jpgFrom indie MP3 blog Aurgasm comes a post (with limited-time-only MP3 downloads, shh!) of singer-songwriter (and Korean American) Priscilla Ahn.

While I can appreciate any artist who can adeptly play and loop the harmonica, guitar and bells for a single song, and often incorporates the banjo, ukulele and even kazoo in her live show; part of me would expect this instrumental overkill to hide a less-than-stellar voice. But not Priscilla. Her voice can only be described as ethereal, and carries a sense of hope and innocence in songs whose lyrics aren’t always so untarnished.

Priscilla, who has recently signed onto Blue Note records, has a very airy quality similar in style to that chick from Sixpence None the Richer. I find myself listening to Lullaby over and over again, which says a lot since as we speak I’m currently in a Hong Kong hotel room and should be out and about sightseeing.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
