Song for a Sunday

A lot of people turn their nose up at singers on reality shows, but you might quite like Sally Barker... she toured with Bob Dylan and the like, but had to quit when her husband died and she had to raise her children.  Well, thank The Voice that she's back; I've rarely heard a singer who can put this much emotion in a song.  She reminds me a bit of Joni Mitchell - appropriately, since she was in a band called the Joni Mitchell Project.


  1. Thanks for that. Thrilling!


  2. I completely agree Simon! Beautiful singing. She added a song on Twitter and I retweeted because it was aching with emotion. Like you, I don't like reality shows... but sometimes they turn up a lost gem :o)

  3. The Voice has had some wonderful, erm, voices this year, but she stands out a mile.


I've now moved to, and all my old posts are over there too - do come and say hello :)
