Motherless Child - Single
Quite why Lily Frost isn't better known is a mystery ranking up there with crop circles. She's a pure-voiced singer of amazing eclecticism, equally at home in pop, jazz, swing, cabaret, French music and rock, as well as being a talented songwriter. She is prolific too, having released eight albums, with 2012's Do What You Love being the most recent. Frost's skill as an interpreter shines through on this simply stunning and epic 6 minute version of the traditional classic "Motherless Child". Producer Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, Sarah McLachlan) frames her haunting voice perfectly.
