bettye swann

I'd just really like to emphasize how wonderful this lady is. I've been playing at least one Bettye Swann song each show for the past month, and that's because she's too good! Her voice is creamy and smooth; her songs have a crisp and clean production. She's easily one of my favorite soul discoveries.

Buy her album here -- or keep an eye out for it elsewhere...
