Erin McKeown

Erin McKeown is often lumped into the whole late 90s folk scene, but her music is less folk and more quirky jazzy cabaret pop. She does not own a TV. She is a multi-instrumentalist and she has a degree in ethnomusicology from Brown. She is possibly my hero. I heard this song while trying on clothes in Macy's the other day, and realized We Will Become Like Birds is the one of her albums I don't own, which I quickly rectified. This song is perfect for this time of year, when you stop using the heat in your car, and you can keep the windows open at home instead of using A/C. Also, check out her most recent album Sing You Sinners, which is a truly swinging set of cover tunes from the 30s, 40s and 50s. She sounds like a modern day Judy Garland on her version of "Get Happy".
