Laura Veirs

Laura Veirs and Her Magic Trick

I caught the video for Laura Veirs "Galaxies" on Subterranean last night. I was looking through the downloads on the SXSW site and noticed the track there as well. Laura's from Seattle and her sound reminds me of Mirah, Citizens Here and Abroad, and Metric. Her voice reminds me a bit of Amy Milian from Stars as well. Her first record on Nonesuch came out in 2004 and it's called "Carbon Glacier". Her most recent one "Year of Meteors" is from August of last year. Check out her official site. You can listen to a sampling of tunes from her albums here. Buy "Carbon Glacier" or "Year of Meteors".

Kate Earl

Kate Earl -  demure and sweet, isn't she?

Kate Earl is a singer-songwriter from Alaska who currently lives in LA. Her sound is reminiscent of Nikka Costa, but with a little less edge. I originally heard her song "Someone to Love" on Grey's Anatomy and fell in love with her sound. Check out her official site to listen to some tunes, watch her live performance with Damien Rice and look at her EPK. Buy the cd.
