She’s got it – The voice, the lyrics, and the vibe. I may just be consumed in the immediate wake of the song, but Anaïs Mitchell has one of the most impressive voices I’ve heard in sometime. I may have found a new favorite female vocalist. Anaïs sings her songs as stories. Her ability is write quality, artistic pieces is apparent. Her style is comparable to a Dylan / Bon Iver feel, both in sound and effect. As a matter of fact, Bon Iver covered one of her tracks during an appearance in Australia.
Anaïs Mitchell – Young Man In America
This, the title track off her most recent album, is merely a portion of what her talents offer. Check out her album which just dropped in February. The Vermont native is finishing up a few shows in America before she heads over to Europe to tour for the Summer. Take a trip with Anaïs Mitchell.
Bonus Track: Bon Iver covering her song Coming Down (song starts at 1:40).
