There is a virtually unsigned singer-songwriter out of Portland, OR named Kelli Schaefer! (the ! is hers) who already has a couple of songs worth buying.
I heard of her via the I Am Fuel/Friends blog and wanted to share the country-gospel Carry Us Over, the gospel-soul City Morgue and Eyes in the Back of My Head. Hers is a lovely, rich, warm voice, like a hearty stew on a winter afternoon.
