A new singer/songwriter by the name of Jenny Owens Young that I think is quite good. Exhibit A? a 44 second tune that must have been written for an Ipod commercial. Exhibit B? An acoustic cover of "hott in hurr" (Yes that would be Nelly). Exhibit C? A longer song of her full length album Transmitter Failure.
