Norah Jones’ sexy sister with a reggae beat. Intrigued? Erin Ivey is from Austin, Texas, a town brimming with singer-songwriters, but she stands out. With her looks (she was voted one of Austins most beautiful women), with her husky voice that makes ice melt, with her band (organ based R&B/dub trio the Finest Kind), with fine lyrics and with solid songs. And, you guessed it, a wee bit of French singing. In Chocolate, she quotes from Marie Laforet’s Mon Amour, Mon Ami. I’m listening to Erins album Broken Gold, that’s just out, and three songs in I want me and the mrs to slip in something more comfortable. See Erin perform the song before a very unappreciative audience.  [Thanks Cameron]

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.
