Ugh. A perfect versus post shattered because I came upon Priscilla Ahn after Meiko. Meiko vs. Priscilla Ahn. Both part-Asian, guitar-playing, pretty, poppy singers. Ah, that would've been so good. Check out my Meiko post here if you'd like a quick juxtaposition or lack thereof.
Well if Priscilla Ahn is good enough for anything, she's good enough for her own post, so here we go. A half-Korean (like me, except minus a half), Priscilla easily has one of the prettiest voices I've ever heard (prettier than Meiko's even). Honestly, her lyrics leave something to be desired if they're simply read, but her God-sent voice pulls depth and meaning from thin air into any verse uttered from her lips. Actually, instrumentally, other somethings can also be desired, but again, the focus is on the voice. That voice like syrup or a strawberry smoothie or any other sweet mellifluous substance.
Priscilla has toured with the Cary Brothers and Meiko (called it :)) and names Juana Molina and Andrew Bird as influences. She can be accurately compared to all four and is therefore a force worth mentioning and should therefore be listened to with much haste:
