I love Rumer

Joe writes: Once in a while, an artist comes along with echoes of acts from the classic rock era like Joni Mitchell or Fleetwood Mac or Roberta Flack or The Carpenters. The problem comes when you listen to their music back to back with an album like Blue or Rumours; they invariably fall far short.

Not so with Rumer. She is an achingly great lyricist; an intuitive, unaffected soul singer; a wonderful songwriter.

Her music is so good it makes me wince. She is up there with the best of them.

And to cap it all, she has the great taste to cover Long Long Day from Paul Simon's One Tricky Pony.

She has 3 awesome tracks already. I await the album. :-)

Slow will be masive I think. The video is already on youtube and it just shows Rumer in recording sessions... some comments on youtube are negative already. But what do we expect when we have a real artist at work, no touch-ups or fakery.

A list of more tracks by RUmer, new and old releases. Fab.
