Ingrid Michaelson – You and I, Avett Brothers – Murdered in the City, Kat Dennings – Sing Out

Sometimes the simplest song can be great. I have three pick’s for you this week that demonstrate this (yes I said three – do your little happy dance now!). The first came to me from my daughter (Sami). It is a song by the artist Ingrid Michaelson who is a New York, indie folk musician. The song is simple, she is just playing a mandolin and vocals, and drums come in at the end. It is called “You and I”.

The second artist is the Avett Brothers. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott and Seth Avett from North Carolina. This song came to me from Ted and the lyrics I found to be quite unique. The song is recorded with just an acoustic guitar and a singer. This song is called “Murdered in the City”. Also check out “Live and Die” by the Avett Brothers.

Finally the last song is just is by Kat Dennings and is just an electric guitar and vocals. She was part of the cast for the movie “Charlie Bartlett” and sang a cover of Cat Stevens “Sing Out”…enjoy.

Listen to each song a few times and they will grow on you.
