Thread Name: Eliza Carthy: Pop or folk?
Subject: RE: Eliza Carthy: Pop or folk?
I don't think she can be pop: she markets music, not knickers abs and knockers. I know of record labels telling female pop singers that they are too old at 25.

Maybe she's rock or somewhere between folk and folk-rock.

Definitely not vapid enough for pop. Remember the old tin-pan-alley judgememnt "Too good. Too classy. The kids won't like it".
