#2: Mirel Wagner

Why I like it
I’ve always had a thing for minimalistic singersongwriters who rely on their voice, guitar and poetic lyrics, so it’s pretty obvious that I like this. Her voice is in the lower register which I also tend to favor.

Staying Power
Maybe. I will probably acquire the album and go see her live in concert if she comes to my parts of the world.
