e needs this fucking song in her life.



i can't find any information online about what guitars she actually plays, but from memory i think she plays a 12-string & a steel lap guitar, as well as acoustic guitar & drums.

in 06 she was named a "guitar god" by rolling stone, becoming the first ever female to make this list.
in 07 she was nominated for a golden globe for her musical contributions with eddie veder (of pearl jam fame) to the sean penn movie into the wild.
(which by the way is a fantastic movie- i highly recommend it. stars emile hirsch, catherine keener, kristen stewart, vince vaughn, marcia gay harden, william hurt + others)

she's fantastic though, i was first introduced to her at tegan & sara's 07 tour when she was their support act. she mostly played songs from her daysleeper ep, which i stupidly didn't buy at the gig & have regretted ever since, as you can't get it anywhere. i did, however, manage to track this song down on myspace, & i love it a lot.

e needs this song in her life.

I watched that movie last week for the first time and I can't stop thinking about it and how good it was! And it had such a good soundtrack and I totally missed that T&S show :((((
