Lisa Mitchell writes good songs
Dunno if her music has reached The States, but Lisa Mitchell writes some good songs. She's a past winner of -- IIRC -- Australian Idol. My impression is that most winners of those ''Idol'' t.v. shows go on to pop-based careers. But in Lisa's case, I would characterize her music as more ''alternative'' -- whatever the heck that means.
Skip ahead to 1:03, for a live version of ''Coin Laundry''.
Here's her ''Australian Idol'' audition. She has a distinctive voice.
And, a cover of Dire Straits' ''Romeo & Juliet'' (which the Indigo Girls also covered).
I appreciate the fact that she sings **and** plays an instrument.
