Title: Selah Sue - s/t
Post by: euro60 on April 14, 2012, 12:32:16 AM
Has anyone heard of her? She's a 22 yr. old from Belgium who released her debut album last year, and it caused a sensation in Belgium and a few other European countries. Think of Lauryn Hill/Erykah Badu/Amy Winehouse. Very derivative, but oh so good. It's been a top-seller for over a year in several European countries.

Had this been released by a UK or US girl, this would've caused a major sensation, I have no doubt. I read that this is getting a US release in the next few months (although it's available on Amazon as an import). Not sure if it will get any traction here, but it should. It's a major "guilty pleasure". And to think this girl is 22, and wrote/co-wrote all of the songs, it just blows the mind.

I saw Selah Sue in concert this past weekend at the U Street Music Hall in DC. Wow, just wow. Talent is dripping off of that girl. I have no idea if she can break big in the US, but by all means she should.

This name always makes me think of Salem Sue, world's largest holstein cow.  That is all.
