Sarah Shannon's "City Morning Song"

Here is one of my favorite singers from the 90's. While in the indie band Velocity Girl, Sarah Shannon's voice added a smooth finish to the rough edged guitar driven sound. On much of their first album, Copacetic, the heavy distortion had a tendency to drown out her voice, but as their sound became more cleaner in the years to come, it all began to meld together beautifully. Sarah is now one here own and has gravitated to a more orchestrated sound. City Morning Song is aptly titled, however, with the Burt Bacharach-ish arrangement, it could easily be a morning some 40 years ago.
