Detroit raised, Pentecostal-run away, Brooklyn-made, Holly Miranda.  Covering Lauryn Hill, “Ex-Factor” – you better be GOOD to cover that song.  So pretty.  She has a hell of a story too.  I’m a sucker for female vocalists with rich voices like Sia, Esthero, Sarah White, etc.

“Every time she sings, you’re convinced,” Mr. Sitek (of TV on the Radio) said. “It doesn’t matter what instrumentation, what genre.”

“Hearing Nina Simone sing other people’s songs had a huge impact on her,” Mr. Sitek said. “Knowing that the human voice is one of the most flexible mediums in the world, the most immediately identifiable instrument.”
