I was first mesmerized by Theresa Andersson’s vocal prowess and dexterous musicianship in December 2009. Besides being an amazing live performer with her ‘one woman band,’ she also has a stunning voice, is an accomplished musician on several different instruments, and is a wonderful storyteller. Theresa now has a new album out, Street Parade (on Basin Street Records), which pays loving tribute to her ‘adopted hometown’ of New Orleans (she’s originally from Sweden).

She’s just released a beautifully haunting new video for the title track that was filmed on location in the upper 9th ward/Bywater neighborhood and at Dithyrambalina in New Orleans.

Part two of three in my band round-up to clear the decks before 2010. I’ll start with a truly astonishing “one-woman-band”, Theresa Andersson, who completely blew me away when I saw a performance she did for Morning Becomes Eclectic. There’s also singer-songwriter Erin McKeown, and Girls in Trouble (a.k.a. Alicia Jo Rabins) whose two years living in Jerusalem inspired her self-titled debut album. From the psychedelic and dreamy Farewell Republic to the bluesy garage punk of the Willowz, and the pop punk/electro of Jessica 6, centering around Nomi Ruiz’s haunting vocals. Oh, and Shilpa Ray and Her Happy Hookers. You just know you’re in for something good with a name like that.

I’m also featuring Sake Of The Song.com, a very cool site where musicians sell their own hand-crafted merchandise to raise money for recording projects. It’s an awesome time to be an indie musician right now, with so many DIY opportunities and a wide-open playing field – it’s a great time to be a fan as well!
