save a horse, ride a cowboy

Haley Bonar has a voice far beyond her age and experience. She is not another female singer-songwriter playing coffeeshops and penning poem-songs about her pets. I first encountered her on the Chairkickers Union tour a few years back along with Low and if thousands. What started as just another Low gig for me changed quickly upon Haley's arrival onto the stage. I had always trusted Alan's taste for what he chose to put on his label but really I had no idea. Her voice commanded the room and quieted the already quiet Low crowd. The CD is just as impressive, a warm intimacy for acoustic guitar and Rhodes piano for you and you alone. There really is no reason why Haley shouldn't be one of the biggest and certainly bestest ladies you hear on modern radio. But hey, I can't afford payola like Sony.
