One of the greatest things about my internship is that I get to hear a lot of new music, much of which is really cool and unique. Take for example, Paolo Nutini, a young Scottish guy who sounds nothing like he looks, haha. His music is part reggae, part R&B, part folk, part blues, and altogether AWESOME.
Another cool discovery: Madeleine Peyroux. Very jazzy/bluesy; I keep reading about her being compared to Billie Holiday. See for yourself:
I really like her voice, and when I found out she did a cover of Smile, I was sold.
