If you like good music, check out this website. Its my favorite.

Brandi Carlile

I went to a great concert the other night at a club called Cafe Due Nord and I'd recommend that you all check her out online. Her name is Brandi Carlile. She's a mix of Melissa Etheridge and Jewel, so if you like that, I have a feeling that you might like this girl. I'm addicted to her CD now, so if anyone would like to form a band with me, please let me know. After watching her rock out the other night, I'm thinking about a career change.

Let me know what you think.
