Daily 2% - Chilled and Ready to Serve [Joanna Newsom]

Today's delivery is brought to you by Joanna Newsom. She's a composer/singer/songwriter who got her start at a very early age. She started playing piano and then, when she was at the old of age 7; decided to switch over to the harp which turned out to be her true love. Her love for music grew and turned into actual compositions and song-writing which ultimately showed a varied range in style. Her first major debut LP was entitled The Milk-Eyed Mender, released in 2004 and it received critical acclaim. She wrote all but one of the songs on the album and also does a lot of the production with, of course, harping. The track I'm bringing to you today is called "The Book of Right-On". You might not recognize it by the title or by the artist but I'm sure you've heard it in a movie or on TV somewhere. This folk track has a very optimistic and upbeat sound and  houses a deeply emotional vibe which is credit to Joanna's music ability, in all aspects. Check out the track and chill....

Sawdust and Diamonds is also another amazing piece of work by Joanna Newsom. The way she plays the harp is haunting :D I'm glad to see this style of folk on Earmilk!!
