Chrissy Coughlin's Look Ahead

Singer-songwriter Chrissy Coughlin was recommended to me. She reminds me of a cross between Sheryl Crow and Rickie Lee Jones with a touch of Aimee Mann. I've had a listen to some of her songs but I'm a bit up in the air about her though. She has a pleasant enough voice that I think might appeal to me in a live setting more than on record. Her sound is on the pop side of folk rock with a tinge of country flavor tossed in. I think if you're into that sound and into singer-songwriters, she's worth having a listen to.

Check her out for yourself. Here are a couple of songs from her album Look Ahead that came out around this time last year. There's an interesting cover of Robert Plant's "Big Log" on it.

"Back To You"

"Do It Out Of Love"
