These women singers and their words!

I’m touched by their heartbreak.  Their emotions run

deep and purple, deeper than the

bluesmen who sound sad about lost love but aggressive

in contrast


Their sincerity comes from a deeper more personal space;  a

darker spot within their hearts, emotions akin to the

loss of a child.  Deep sadness confined within

a shattered crystal vessel full of dull grey smoke.  Smoke that

leaks through the cracks of the glass, twists its way through the

heart of the singer then into the

heart of the world.


Their songs are beautiful and melancholy,

meant to be shared with other women who

understand the heartache and

men who can only stare through the smoke filled glass and

wonder what the enchantment means.


Their music was a revelation to me.

A look into another world, a world of intense, deep and often

quiet passion and pain.


My vision was twice distorted though, first

through the cracked crystal glass then,

through tears ..
