Nora McMahon at the Tin Star, Thursday 3-20
Let me just say that if you have not heard Nora "Sweet Sounds" McMahon, you need to. She is a small woman with a big voice. Pretty, too.
Click any picture to enlarge, click on any link to listen to the music.
Case Tanner, who has played bass with her for a while suggested that I come down to the Tin Star last night to take a listen, so I did.
Her voice reminds me a bit of Tracy Chapman: big, but her music is definitely not as dark as Tracy's tends to be.
I like her sound a lot -- check it out for yourself.
Later in the set they invited me to join them for a number.
It was a beautiful evening.
Here's another one of Nora's songs. I hope you enjoy it as much as those of us who were there did.
Thank you for letting me join you for a bit, Nora. Case and Milton: you are lucky guys to get to play with somebody as great as her.
For the rest of you -- if you have the opportunity to hear these guys you should do it.
Here's Nora's MySpace page where you can check out more of her terrific sound.
