Just checking

Everyone is familiar with the work of Toni Childs? I hope so, her albums are akin to great books that everyone should read. Her voice is unique and full of pathos, yet surprisingly uplifting.

Union - her debut album.

House of Hope - dedicated to people who are growing, people who are just getting by, and people hanging on for dear life.

Women's Boat - featuring the single Lay Down Your Pain earned her a third Grammy nomination, for Best Female Rock Performance.

Ultimate Collection - a compilation of her there previous albums.

You're just a regular old font o'knowledge, aren't you! I love her voice... sort of reminds me of a rougher Alyson Mouyet (sp?)

P-D - only because I tortured this poor boy at Tower Records until he found it. I first heard her in the Lily Tomlin movie The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe. Had no idea who she was but I was completely smitten. And have been ever since.
