I loved the Jonicast, even though I’m not a huge fan. For me, @Twang hit le nail sur le bonce when he said, ‘she’s very pleased with herself.’
I prefer my singer songwriters to be feckin’ amazed that anyone would want to hear their stuff.
Hence my love of this lot:
Please add to the thread your examples of female singer – songwriters who are not only not Joni but move you to the point of tears, chills and hugging yourself with joy.
