Gin Wigmore -These Roses

Gin Wigmore, a talented singer/songwriter with one hell of a voice, is a pretty big deal down in Australia and has done well on the European charts, but for some reason we have yet to hear her on the radio here. I am predicting we will hear her on the radio soon based off of her collaboration with an amazing producer Mike Elizondo in Hollywood who has also worked with the likes of Fiona Apple, Regina Spektor, Eminem, Nelly Furtado, and Maroon 5. She has also played with the Cardinals (Ryan Adams and his band) quite a bit. Yup, pretty big names. Keep an eye on her and see what happens.

This song has the ability to catch your ear mainly due to her interesting crackly voice, (my mom calls it a grating voice but what does she know?), but despite or because of the voice it still remains a pretty great song. Her voice resembles Macy Gray now that I think of it, which seems strange coming out of a little blond New Zealander. But you can decide for yourself. "I will stay addicted to you"

(you can find a free mp3 download of her song "Golden Ship" on her website which is in the link above)
