Rumer

Recommended
Last week, English singer Rumer’s just-issued debut, Seasons of My Soul, hit the top spot on iTunes’ album chart, after a profile of the artist ran on CBS Sunday Morning. That’s an achievement worth bragging about, it also points up her (and Sunday Morning’s) core demographic: old folks. Call her the anti-Ke$ha, or perhaps the Norah Jones that Jones herself no longer seems interested in embodying. Though that description might set off alarms—and it should!—Rumer actually transcends the fusty nostalgia she openly courts.
