[quote=“sandman”]Finally got around to Youtubing a wee girl I met when I was back in the UK, the daughter of one of my sister’s friends. Fuck me! She’s brilliant! (and somewhat sexy) Amy MacDonald. Do yourselves a favour and click the link.
Were you speaking figuratively, or literally? And about the singer or people posting here?
I was at first rolling my eyes and thinking “Here’s another no-talent that won’t go anywhere”, but I have to admit her voice is immediately distinct. MacDonald’s voice is reminiscent of Linda Thompson’s, though not an imitation.
One would hope she doesn’t get ruined by record companies and producers trying to “mould” her. (“Mold her” is more like it. Most A&R types ruin bands.)
Here’s a young singer I’d like to hear solo if she ever tried, Aura O’Neill. I’ve been a fan of the Silencers since their first album and enjoyed their work as Fingerprintz from the early 1980s (they were an anti-new wave band). Jimme O’Neill’s daughter (he is the lead singer in the video linked below) has an amazing voice.
