Laura Jansen

Lauren Jansen just celebrated the release of her EP Single Girls on Friday, and I gotta say from a fan's perspective it's been a long time coming. The first time I heard the demo of the title track months ago I was mesmerized and taken in - from her sassy gritty jazz-swung song "Trauma" to her simple weaving of indie pop melodies on enchanting tunes like "Bells", her voice is simple and perfect. Fun facts include her singing on the Hotel Cafe tour and alongside Joshua Radin at Ellen DeGeneres' wedding. I thought about listing her as a Prediction, because this one is probably going to end up on Grey's or similar major network television, but thought she warranted much more than that. Her music completely and honestly human. As evidence, check out the heartbreaker of a song below.
