These singers are a new crop of chanteuses that I wanted to profile because of their look as well as their sound.
Conya Doss is a former teacher of special needs children turned artist. She is has been classidied as neo-soul but doesn't want to define her sound because as she puts it "it narrows your audience." Her bohemian style appeals to me and her bold accessories and makeup are fierce. She is an artist who has been recognized mainly through word of mouth. Her third cd, "Love Rain Down" will be released on October 17th and you can hear excerpts at http://www.conyadoss.net/
Whimsy is what I think of when I think of Corinne Bailey Rae. Her ballet flats and floaty dresses match well with her voice and lyrics. She recently released her first self titled cd to wide acclaim and recently won two MOBO awards for Best UK Newcomer and Best UK Female. Go to http://www.corinnebaileyrae.net/ for more info.
