Cheyenne Marie Mize - Best

First I have to ask you a small favor. Please vote for my fellow and highly accomplished blogging friend, Lydia of Sunset in the Rearview, for a grant that she is in the running for, along with three others. It is fantastic to see a fellow music blogger gunning for a grant like this, let alone one that I occasionally contribute to. I'm really excited for her so please, please, please, take two seconds to vote. You don't have to enter any personal information, you literally just click a button to vote. Thanks so much. CLICK HERE TO VOTE

Now that you have voted, here is a song. This one is from an artists that other notable bloggers are already putting on their "Best of the Year" lists, so I figured I should probably check her out. You can too at her official site or stream/buy her album over at bandcamp or download her daytrotter sessions for free.

She has one of those voices that is hard to forget while simultaneously sounding like some other of my favorite songstresses (Regina Spektor, Emiliana Torrini, Allie Moss, Brooke Waggoner) that first grabbed my attention. But then there is so much more. There is a rawness to these songs that makes me think "this is how Norah Jones sounded when she first started writing songs, before they were ever recorded." They are the kind of songs that you want to listen to while sitting by the fire, drinking a warm cup of herbal tea, being introspective. Cheyenne Marie Mize sings slow and quiet songs that wear the disguise of background music, but once you get thirty seconds into it, you can't help but delve in whole heartedly. Suggested listens: "Rest" and "Kind"
