Natalia Zuckerman + Jess Klein

Jess Klein has been a hard one to figure out (folk? rock? folk-rock?), but she seems to be leaning further into country-pop territory. She makes good use of her stellar voice, and though her lyrics are somewhat cliché-ridden, she sings them with all the conviction of a Dolly Parton. Her latest is 2009's Bound to Love.
