Kendra Morris

I'm pretty baffled at how someone who looks the way she looks can sound the way she sounds. Typically when I hear such an outpouring of soul, I expect there to be a lot more meat behind it. This woman somehow manages to apply a layer of thick smooth buttah on all of the words lined up to exit her mouth, to the point that when they finally hit air, you've been exposed to nothing short of bone-chilling bluesy awesome. I just wanna listen all day. In a rundown hotel on the Mississippi Delta, or someplace.

Gotta say, I hear some influence from the likes of Macy Gray
, Duffy, Amy Winehouse, and Grace Potter. If you're in NYC and wanna see this phenom live and in person, check her out at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on May 25th.
