OMG, anybody who plays fiddle knows how difficult it is to play and talk at the same time, let alone sing. How could so much talent be packed into one body! I'm agog!

In the same style, using samplers and stuff, you have Nosfell. incredible french artist, mixing beat box, guitar and singing in english, french and a language he invented. A whole universe, and most intense live performances i've ever seen.

Thanks, Ze!!!!! She is truly amazing!

I've seen her perform live, and she's amazing. At first you don't know what's going on and then, wham!

This is awesome- Thanks Ze. Also- in perhaps the same genre is this performance by Andrew Bird from a year or so ago.

I've only ever heard Bruce Springsteen's version of this. But this one is very beautiful.

Check out Lucy Swann as well! She uses the same looping-herself-technique, and uses lots of quirky small sounds in her songs, as well as using her voice in many different ways. Very nice!

There's a fantastic recording of Theresa doing a complete set in the KCRW studios. Better mic'd than her kitchen, and every song is fantatstic (and different).

Yes, I'm a huge fan!
