tmbt: etta james

Tonight, I am listening to the sweet, smooth alto of Etta James, so laid back and breezy in that breathy, husky, yet simple way. So much comes across in her voice… it inspires me to be a simple singer. I often flit between mellow, breathy, Norah Jones-type vocals and that of the more dynamic and dramatic like Portishead, Amel Larriex, even that Dion chic. I love Etta. I’m not Etta, but I sure think she’s a beauty queen!
