I don't know how people around here feel about Sara Bareilles...but I thought I would just let anyone who is reading this know that her album, Little Voice, is OFF THE FREAKING CHAIN (and I don't say stuff like that...).
This girl has SOUL, an awesome voice, and brilliant songwriting skills.
I VERY HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU GET INTO HER. I'm not saying she sounds like him at all...but to me she feels like the female John Mayer. I mean that in the sense that they are both incredibly talented & soulful songwriters who really rise to the top. I feel like she is at or is not far from being on the same level as him in terms of songwriting ability. A big difference is that she uses a piano and he uses a guitar. She, too, also has a brilliant song called "Gravity." A tour with those two would be AMAZING. Listen to the clip of Many the Miles if you want to see where I might feel a similarity in terms of soulful songwriting like John Mayer.
I'm telling you...don't be fooled into thinking she's just another pop singer by Love Song. She definately has some fantastic pop sensibility, but this girl is LEGIT.
I would certainly recommend her to fans of Greta's influence in The Hush Sound.
