Music Scene: Neko Case

I usually don't write about my music interests, but today is a different day. Last night I saw Neko Case at Bimbo's 365 in San Francisco. She was amazing! I only found out about NC about three or four months ago. When I first listened to her music, I wasn't convinced. After listening to her album "Blacklisted" a third time, I heard it.

Her voice is both angelic and throaty, soft and deep. Her music style is considered 'blue grass' but those words don't reflect the complexity in her songs and voice. I highly recommend that you listen to Neko Case at least once. If you are like me and take three listens to hear the beauty of her voice, then listen to one of her albums three times.
