I was listening to Tift Merritt today ...

...and that jangling guitar riff that begins "Trouble Over Me'' always puts me in a good mood. Her phenomenal debut album "Bramble Rose'' was one of the best of 2002 and is well worth owning (I saw it on Amazon today for $9.99 -- cheap!) Of course nobody wants to pay for music these days. You should at least pony up for the MP3 of the song. But then you'll want to listen to "Virginia, No One Can Warn You'' and "When I Cross Over'' and, well, you might as well get the CD. You won't be disappointed.

Check out her video at and dig that sweet cherry (wood) Gibson she's playing. I want that guitar!!!

  1. I saw her play at an outdoor festival a couple of years back. Incredible voice. She sang one song in French. Now that's impressive.
