#2: Mirel Wagner

Who is she?
An Ethiopian born singersongwriter who grew up in Finland. Her album has the wonderful title When the Cellar Children See the Light of Day
Offical Website

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.

Listen for yourselves
