Sounds like getting into my wife's car: me, her, and her crazy-assed driving.

Good solid sound, makes me think at Patty Smith in her 'Horses'-days. Compliments from Amsterdam, Holland.
Sounds good A little Blues flavour there, for sure.
Compelling voice. Just great1

For a moment I heard Beth Hart and Bonnamassa.

I love Patti Smith

{#Roflol}{#Dancingbanana}{#Clap}{#Notworthy}

You have completely blown my mind and made my day before Thanksgiving. ROFL: fredriley as Kept Toyboy. Never, never would have imagined this. 

still of Richard Gere and Lauren Hutton from  
"Hold me, fredriley! Let me sing some Eliza Gilkyson for you!"

Good on ya, mate. 

 
this is outstanding. i dearly love a nod to the death wish in the morning. also reminds me, oddly, of hearts and bones - paul simon.
more important, i can hear dylanish riffs, and in fact would not mind hearing mr. dylan sing it, with or without ms. gilkyson.  Damn her name is hard to spell. oh well, hope to see more of it. 
Everybody in my homeless camp thinks this song is cool...
nice but there are a thousand performers that sound and look just like her
Just love her voice.  BTW, attached lyrics are (mistakenly) for Easy Rider

Patti Smith be proud of this daughter. Always wondered why after PSG the world had to be inflicted with so much carap music. Well done.

I'll bet.  Her voice is powerful and sure with a realistic touch of huskiness, and automatically assumes the position of attention.  Sounds like she's not close to her decibel limit on this recording.

I for one can appreciate the tongue-in-cheek nature of this comment.  Those that are offended by it either don't get the dark humor or find the comment cuts a little too close to the bone for their comfort.

  Oh, come on, spacemoose - you KNEW a response like that would draw fire.  I agree that it's a bit over-the-top (and true) in relation to the comment for which it was a response, but something tells me there's a lot more of an undercurrent than what ended up in your comment.

jelani, calling someone an "idiot" just because they post a comment with which you don't agree is, in my opinion, childish and dismissive. As is my response to you:  {#Nyah}

Ahem.  Having said that, I'ma go hug a tree, donate my last five bucks to Animal House Shelter and Sanctuary, and have a shot of Bacardi while sitting in my garden, soaking up a little of the rare autumn sunshine.{#Sunny}

I like this singer/songwriter a lot.  Catch one of her vids on youtube and enjoy yourselves.  Very genuine, very

I love this song!  First heard it on another alternative station, KPIG, which stopped broadcasting in our area.  Anyway, Eliza has become one of my favorite alternative/folk/blues/ singers.  I recommend her song "The Great Correction" if you want to blow all your candles.  Thanks RP for playing her again.

Never heard Eliza here on RP, yesterday i bought the album Red Horse by Red Horse. Eliza is one of the three masterminds behind that production... Amazing!!!

Ooooh - what would really go well after this is Shirley Manson's "Sampson and Delilah."  Powerful stuff.
Just saw her at Blue Rock Studios in Wimberley, Texas a few weeks ago.  What a venue (look it up) and what a voice!  (and songwriter!!)
Oh, and she just bought a house here!

Eliza Gilkyson by *NezumiWorks
Kelseigh Nieforth   ©2005-2010 *NezumiWorks

Live at the Library & Archives Canada, Ottawa, September 5, 2005.

Eliza was amazing. Not having her band, she was given the freedom of a lone woman with a guitar on a bare stage. She dispensed with her format and simply played whatever songs she liked, in whatever order she liked. Between, she joked with audience members, told rambling stories about places she'd been and people she'd known, and made a close bond with all of us in so doing. She even took requests! If I ever had doubts about Eliza being a superior artist, they were put to rest that night.

Thanks for playing more Eliza!! I love every song she sings/plays.
This song grabs me, and I like her vocals on it.

However, upon checking out the album as a whole, I like her vocal quality and the lyrics less.

I still really like the base feel of many of the songs, though.

Patti Smith? Marianne Faithfull?? She's so much more melodic than both of those (great) ladies!

Me no likey.




boring.
Excellent! Who would think this was the daughter of the guy who wrote "Bare Necessities" for Disney?
 tompoll wrote:

Same!  I was thinking slightly older Joan Osborne.  Liked it.

Wow.

She might hate it but my first thought is when I heard this was: Marianna Faithfull?. In the mean time I bought the album, by using the Amazon click as to generate revenue for RP. The album is nice but Angel and Delilah is the best song of it. The rest is too much "folky" for me. If you like folk, go check it out!

okay, but you never hear men commenting on how all men sound the same, post modern drivel? no way dude.


Let me be the first then. Most post-modern (wtf is that?) male singers have the same raspy, whispering, I-can't-really-sing voice. Ray La Montagne, the dude from Coldplay (though he can almost hit a note) plenty of others but I gotta get to work.

I'm not sure what your point is as there no difference between the genders here.

 

I was commenting on someone applauding that this singer sounds different than other female singers, and how he sometimes thinks they all sound the same.. My point is that there are similarities in voices, not just female voices, get it?

Whoa stop the post modern drivel! Take note: anyone who is honest about it can tell whether a chick is singing during a certain era; you can hear a distinct difference between the voices of the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and so on. Why? I don't know. The timbre, inflection, and overall quality are distinct to the decade. The same applies to guy voices.


 

Yep to that. You either like it or you don't...................
Nice lyrics to this number, and a very nice rendition.

My position is that since the 1980s guys have not been in the same league with the female artists. They have that 80s, 90s, etc quality of voice; but I know who my favorite chicks are just the same. Yes the guys all sound alike to me-just plain bad!

Hey, she looks the image of a woman I went out with for 3 years, who was 13 years older than me and seriously feckin' HOT! A 'MILF' well before the term was invented :o). This is a fine number, and well worth an initial 7 from the Nottingham jury, likely rising on future hearings.
Now SHE has a different voice from many other female singers. I really feel so many sound just alike. Nice track. IMHO.
Saw her opening for Richard Thompson. Great (if short) set. She was playing solo (as was Richard) but had a lot of power and passion. Definitely worth the effort to see her live if you can.

The daughter of a very famous songwriting father, talented in her own right.

First time hearing this. RP introduced me to the artist, for which I am grateful. Her work definitely deserves more exposure. Does this mean I need to buy yet another CD?
