:-D

I bet that if you have only listened to her songs, without reading any article about her elsewhere, or seeing her picture, you can't tell that the singer is a female, either.

She sounds so masculine. The album covers don’t really make it easily evident too.

I always thought that the lyrics were screwed up in a few places, for a man to be singing them… but I tagged it 'poetic license'. :-P

A great artist nevertheless. Real talent.

Most of her songs rock.
