More love for the female singer-songwriters

A friend of mine is nominated for an Indpendent Film Channel award for a 68-second movie he made about the power of imagination. (Check out the film and vote for it to win here.)

The film features a song by Nashville singer-songwriter Garrison Starr, who I had never heard of before, but after seeing the film and checking out her MySpace page, I am now ready to endorse her fully.

She's got a nice, rootsy vibe that reminds me of my college days in halcyon Ohio, all golden wheat fields and Amish buggies. Her voice reminds me of Shawn Colvin's or Shelby Lynne's, earthy and real.

What can I say? It's a good week for female singer-songwriters.
