Anna Calvi: Joan Of Arc

The eagerly anticipated self-titled debut album from new 28-year-old British singer/guitarist Anna Calvi will be released Monday.

I chose this video because it focuses on her considerable talent as a guitarist - her haunting cover of Leonard Cohen's "Joan of Arc" sounds like Jeff Buckley scoring a David Lynch film.

A primarily European three-month long tour kicked off yesterday, but she has several shows in NYC March 8-10 and will also be at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas March 14-19.
