Fancy Blue (2003)

Details Release Date: Aug 12, 2003; Lead Performance: Tywanna Jo Baskette

With a sweet whisper of a voice, melancholy yet catchy melodies, lyrics just this side of nutty, and producer Clay Jones' eclectic soundscapes, Nashvillian naif Tywanna Jo Baskette creates an enchanting debut. Think Victoria Williams mixed with Lisa Germano and Little Orphan Annie -- a combination that makes for 19 unique tracks, ranging from ''I Love Goat Cheese'' (''Do they hurt your udders?'') to the most intense antismoking song ever, ''1985/1998'' (the years her parents died of lung cancer).
