Emiliana Torrini

Is my favourite new singer.. Not sure where I heard her song "Sunny Road" for the first time, maybe on DiG, maybe on the js.. but it's a brilliant song... I'm not sure what it is with me and Icelandic artists, it just seems that they produce more than their fair share of brilliant music.. (Interesting trivia, Emiliana wrote Kylie's #1 hit "Slow" - I've never heard of it, so wouldn't know.)

There is a really good docco on PBS called Iceland : The Future of Sound, which explores the "...small, isolated country produces some of the most innovative pop music on the planet."
