I don’t know Jess, but I do know Matt and Ellen, her co-bloggers at The Sound of Blackbirds (click on the link, Matt, you know you want to) and so I’d trust her when she says she’s got some sweet information for all of you on the left coast:
I’m road managing Annabelle Chvostek, a former member of the Canadian folk trio The Wailin Jennys (yes, they would be Red House Records artists). She’s a pretty phenomenal multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, and her new album, Resilience, is great. I highly recommend it. You can listen on Myspace.
