Reminds me of something... maybe Aimee Man?  I particularly like when the horns come in.

Can't say I've ever heard Amelia Curran, but this really turned my head. It should be obvious that music speaks to us on a very individual basis, without launching into a thesis, I'll just say that the vibe I get from the RP folks is one of respect, and though I don't want to put words in their mouths I think they put out a range of music for us so that a community is formed. So let's just enjoy it the way we can, and as my 92-yr old momma would say: if you can't say something nice...  As I heard one time at work: "Keep the junk out of the funk!" Life without RP would be a little boring.

Sorry I haven't heard your album yet.  When is the release date?  What's that?  You haven't recorded an album?  Kinda what I thought.

I grew up in St. John's, newfoundland around the same time Curran did, and I have good friends who are good friends with her. I've been feeling uncharacteristically homesick lately, and this ain't helping :) Love it all the same though.

I'm not surprised this song made the playlist, sort of surprised "Song on the Radio" isn't here.  Too obvious?

More investigation needed,followed no doubt by more expense! Thanks Bill...{#Tongue-out} 

Kind of Ray LaMontagne crossed with Tracy Chapman feel. Can't be a bad thing.

I hope this helps.

Within the first chord I knew this song was going to be good, and I was reaching to crank the volume.

I love this song but it's not avail in iTunes, is that a Canadian distributor's conflict?  Is this album self-released?
