Type of music generally:
Most recent release, From Greater Heights (2012)
Nefrit El-Or has a gorgeous voice, rather Tori Amos-ish or Carina Round-ish, and is a strong songwriter along the early- and mid-career Sarah McLachlan vein, as well. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Maya Blue is the only one we've heard
Maya Blue (2003)
Wide in U.S.
Nefrit El-Or—vocals, acoustic guitars, keyboards
Brian Weber—bass (2, 3, 7, 9)
This is an impressive debut, and El-Or's vocals, especially, are remarkable. I'm a little surprised more pop fans haven't discovered her wonderful voice. Her songs are quite compelling, and really, those lovely vocals are hard to ignore. Overall, I highly recommend Maya Blue as an album, and I'm definitely interested in hearing where she goes from here. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
