One of the Goals of Considerable sounds is to illuminate music that our readers may not have heard before that we believe is worthy of your attention. Many of these artist's are independent. (Not affiliated with major music labels). A great wealth of talent lays in waiting.
May I introduce you to Sue G. Wilkinson (If you are not already a fan). I only recently became acquainted with her music and regret not previously having this entire CD in my MP3 player's "favorites" list.
A song I feel is a real treat for the ears is "Sympatico" a lush somewhat ambient piece that showcases Sue's voice in modes well outside the blues scales where she is obviously quite comfortable. Her piano chops alone are reason enough to investigate this remarkable record. But you also get a unique sensibility of solid songcraft and one of the most legitimate female blues voices in the history of the genre!
But to classify this work as R&B is simply too limiting, I detect bit of Professor Longhair, Fats Waller, Wendy Rene, Judy Clay, and Ann Rabson. But there seems to be equal amounts of Kate Bush, Annie Lennox, and Dolores O'Riordan, (I know these references to other artists are never really fair but you have to know where you came from to grasp where your going, right?)
An interesting note about Sue; her first demo tape was co-produced and promoted by DC Editor Bryan E. Hall and the band Kansas' Phil Ehart. According to Hall, the most most common response from record labels was that "no one would ever buy another album if we produced her."
Sue has opened for many big-time acts such as Kansas and Art Garfunkel, and she has toured extensively in Japan and England where they love her!
