I love "new" music, even when it's only new to me. In my last post, I forgot to talk about an artist whose music I was introduced to while in Cali last week. One of my goals in life (I should add this to my 43 things) is to have an extensive, eclectic iTunes songlist, so when I come across music that's unique, I immediately download it.
Some of you may be familiar with Toby Lightman, and if you are, give yourself some cool points. She's a super-talented singer and songwriter with a great, soulful voice and awesome hair. The information I gathered on her says she's a little bit Macy Gray and a little bit Bonnie Raitt. Not sure if I agree with either of those, but she's worth a listen anyway (you can listen on her website). My favorite of her songs are "Devils and Angels" (on my playlist), "My Sweet Song," "Don't Wake Me" and "Better" (written for Toby's sister after she had her baby boy - perfect for mamas!).
