She resembles a bit early Nanci Griffith and her voice is at times like Lucinda Williams. She sings relaxed like she's sitting right beside you and seems really to enjoy herself. You can't quite classify Cantrell's music or vocal style but it's sure a departure from the overproduced all-sound-alike stuff on the radio. I hope she becomes a big commercial success but in the same time let's hope Nashville keeps its hands off her sound. One Shania is more than enough.
Sampler with some live recordings, demo's, radio performances and album tracks.
