Editor's note: this very pretty lady gives off a strange vibe of being Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, any backup R&B singer from the 60s, Joan Baez and Carol Channing all put into a musical blender and spun out in a vinyl weave. The inspiration from the mystical 16th century Indian singer is lost on me. Apparently it wasn't on her though as she is highly-caffeinated in whatever it is that she was doing here. I'm actually surprised that she is as obscure as she is because this ain't too bad! She has a nice nose too. Oh yeah, Stairway to Heaven is an original and not a Zeppelin re-hash, unfortunately.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
