I hope this is the right place for this sort of thing. I found out about this gal this morning while reading mother jones. For about 8 years I was a music promoter in Norther Michigan. I dealt mostly with folk, bluegrass, and indie acoustic musicians. I wish I had heard of her and her bands sooner. AJ Lee is 13, has received a handful of awards and already has a voice that's as rich and sophisticated as some of the best bluegrass singers that have been in the business for decades. This stuff is consistently leaving me speechless. MJ was comparing her to Alison Krauss, I'm not sure I'd go that far yet, but check back with her in a couple years and maybe. Check out this link for one my favorites that I've found this morning.
Much nicer to listen to than the more publicised youngsters.... Maybe I'm just not up with the times or something. My tastes are going more acoustic these days. Partly from the thought of no power entertainment and partly a more "organic" sound. I just acquired a mandolin this summer some I am learning to convert what I know from guitar to that.
