Maria Taylor

I have a problem with solo female pop singers with terrific voices--I cannot get enough, never, no way. Rebecca Gates, Feist, Brandy, Beth Orton, Alison Krauss, all have kept me company in the last couple years, and now I find Maria Taylor, who sounds a bit like Jenny Lewis and a bit like Rickie Lee Jones, with quick pretty songs and a big snaky voice. She's all I'm listening to, for now.
