but before I knew I was lost,
before I knew I was a prisoner
and I still can’t find a way to make it right.“
Rustic, organic and crisp, Basia Bulat’s husky, soothing voice embodies the cool relief of an Indian Summer. Budding with talent, this sweet Canadian planted her roots in the industry back in 2007 with the release of her first album Oh My Darling through Rough Trade Records.
With the changing of the seasons, Bulat has re-emerged promoting her new album, Heart of my Own. Scheduled for release January 26, 2010, this girls warm, spirituous voice is the only thing your ears will want to curl up to during the oncoming cold winter nights. Talented and soulful, this is a lady you won’t soon forget.
Not thoroughly convinced? The New York Post backs me up:
“Heart Of My Own” may be the most perfect name for an album for Basia Bulat, an unbelievable sounding songbird you have probably never heard of…From adorably gritty to sultry and somber, she exudes a sound that only had one option in life — to be heard.”
If you aren’t familiar with Bulat until now, you don’t have to wait until January to hear her wondrous pipes, get acquainted with the brilliance that is Oh My Darling in the meantime. Plus, bonus, take a peak at her new single from Heart of my Own, “Gold Rush.” Enjoy!
