Emily Rossum - A Million Pieces.

Really like the song, beautiful melody and lyrics
Never too late to change the pace
oh how the days creep up on you
but the goodness is something you don't have to chase
cause its following you

Ellie Goulding - The Writer

Ellie is an English songwriter, came across this song a few months ago while flicking through the music channels, and was immediately struck by the melody and her very distinctive singing voice.

hmm, I'm undecided.  I think I like her voice, however most of the other songs on utube seem too poppy for her vocals.  The Writer seems more her style but like she is being forced to do this mixed/pop stuff that I can't stand.

Totally agree with you, really don't think her vocals are suited to the other songs,will be interesting to see what road she does go down eventually.I held off buying her album after listening to the other stuff and just bought The Writer.

I do like her cover version of Elton Johns Your Song though, vocally she is far more suited to that type of song.

just started to check them out.  I'm in love with Zooey's voice buuuut...not sure I'm a fan of the overall sound they've got going.  Though I will admit, I haven't given them a fair shot, I've only listened to them on Pandora and they mix in other bands, so I don't have a comprehensive view of them.

I guess it's an acquired taste - though their second record is way better than their first. Listen to 'Black Hole', 'Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?', 'Sentimental Heart' and 'This Is Not a Test' from Volume One and 'Don't Look Back', 'Ridin' In My Car' and 'Lingering Still' from Volume Two! They really grow on you. I can't remember the last time I started my morning without Volume Two playing on repeat in the background.

Sinead ( pronounced - Shin-aid ) McNallyMoody Blues

Just heard this song on the car radio earlier this evening, kind of catchy piano melody. Don't know much about the artist except what I read online,pianist singer songwriter, she is Irish from a town called Dundalk, about an hour away from me in Dublin.

She sounds like Regina Spektor to me in that song for me.  :)
