SongVault Artist Profile
New Jersey, United States
Americana / Alternative Country
husky voice, confessional songs and rootsy sound have earned numerous comparisons to the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Patty Griffin and Shawn Colvin. After years developing her distinctive phrasing and rhythmic guitar style playing lounges and casinos along the Jersey Shore, in 2002 she released her solo debut, Disguise, a deeply felt song cycle about the dissolution of a relationship. As Blee told Atlantic City Weekly, she has always been inspired by "singer-songwriters - writers who display incredible courage by what they reveal of themselves." With her own music, she says, she strives to "let the songs happen ... and try to stay out of their way."
