Daily Inspiration

What’s inspiring me today.

Emiliana Torrini.

I had never heard of Torrini when a Jezebel friend left me a note on Facebook telling me he thought I looked like her in some of my photos.  I looked her up on Google Images and thought, “okay, I suppose so….”

I then forgot about her, until she popped up on Pandora the other day (yes, I use Pandora a lot).  I liked the song so much I started a Torrini station, which has quickly become my favorite; a LOT of Theivery Corp. and Zero 7.

My first thought was that Torrini sounds a bit like Bjork, so I was not surprised to read that she’s from Iceland.  Her singing is more melodic, however, and her music less experimental.  They are, in a word, totally different.  But, I do recognize similarities in their singing voices.

For a start, here is one of my favorite songs of hers I’ve heard thus far.

You can check out her music on Last FM.

    I’ve listened to a few of Emiliana’s songs, and I should probably download some more. This is gonna sound really geeky, but the song she did for one of the “Lord of the Rings” movies was gorgeous!

    If You Go Away and Heartbreaker are my favorites of hers. Especially the former.
