Matthew Edwards Elle Osborne - Singer of the year?? (51* d) RE: Elle Osborne - Singer of the year?? 02 Jul 12


I can't get to the Green Note, but I suppose I ought to thank srothman for persuading me to listen again to Elle Osborne's CD So Slowly Slowly Got She Up, where I can't find any of the faults which srothman seems to think are so glaringly self-evident. What I do hear is an example of skilful phrasing and clear articulation which gets to the heart of the songs she sings. Her voice breathes life into her material, so that 'Three Score and Ten' stands out as the disturbing lament it should be, instead of a jolly chorus song. She takes some risks, but these pay off by the intense focus she puts on getting the story across.

I don't expect that everyone will react the same way, and srothman is perfectly entitled to express an opinion; I just wish that opinion could have been expressed with more civility. It feels very unpleasant to subject any artist to such a rude tirade.

Matthew
