I never really listened to harpist/singer Joanna Newsom - I had her stereotyped as being too warbly-voiced cutesy for the sake of being cutesy. But then I heard her new album and went to her concert at the Sixth and I Historic Synagogue a few weeks ago, and now I get it. She is awesome and I am adding her to my pantheon of adorable singer-songwriters (mentioned earlier).

Jens is still tops for me but I love them all. Leave me a comment and let me know what other adorable musicians I should add to the line graph.
Yes, I have too much time on my hands. Apologies for using any copyrighted images above.
