The singer-songwriters of tomorrow

Posted on

MARISSA NADLER
Songs III: Bird on the Water

SOUNDS LIKE A female Devendra Banhart: hushed, haunting, otherworldly.
FUN FACT She’ll play some tour dates with Peter Bjorn and John.
VERDICT Gorgeously strange.

BRETT DENNEN
So Much More

SOUNDS LIKE Early Paul Simon/Tracy Chapman: folky, lyrical, melodic.
FUN FACT John Mayer is a famous (and vocal) fan.
VERDICT Big talent with a young face and an old soul.

KATE NASH
Foundations EP

SOUNDS LIKE Lily Allen unplugged: saucy, smart, and a little pissed.
FUN FACT She’s already a bona fide star in her native U.K.
VERDICT There’s room to grow, but we like it so far.
