Gayle Skidmore -- 2 singles and an EP

I don't know who this lady is, but damn is she cool. As you can see from the album art, Gayle Skidmore is a talented visual artist. As you can hear in "Rag Doll" and "Barrel, Trigger, Gun," she's a brilliant songwriter. Apparently she also crafts origami set pieces. I'm a little spooked by the unending fathoms of her creativity. But if someone's gotta be a vessel for the muse, Skidmore uses her inspiration well.

Of her two most recent singles, "Rag Doll" is my favorite. The poignant imagery is matched only by Skidmore's delicate performance:

I am a rag doll sewn by a blind man
To keep him company and make him happy
But he sewed me full of flaws
And now I'm breaking you just because

If you want to hear more from her, you're in luck. Skidmore's running an Indiegogo campaign to fund her next project.
