Darlin' Ukelele

Meet Jolie Holland, "gothic" folksinger with a voice that's been described as sounding like "the ghost of Billie Holiday lost in the Appalachian Mountains." Her latest CD, "Escondida," features the song "Darlin' Ukelele" (sic), a clip of which you'll find here.

I think she sounds like the female version of a mix between John Prine and Tom Waits. (Not surprisingly, Waits is a big fan.) Holland is co-founder and former member of the uke-inclusive "Be Good Tanyas". Here's a link to a recent review. Link
