Judith Owen - Happy This Way - Hi-Fi News

Described as a "Welsh-Californian based in the US", Owen straddles assorted pop and jazz genres to create something akin to Eva Cassidy but without the inherent tragedy. Jamie Cullum describes her as "the female Randy Newman", which suggests he's never heard a single Randy Newman song. She's simply not that acidic. Owen penned every track, and attracted guests including Richard Thompson, Julia Fordham and Cassandra Wilson - this one just might transcend the audiophile curse. Terrific.
