Anaïs Mitchell – Young Man In America

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.
