Gabriella Cilmi

(Popular, Rock) Permanent link

A friend recently introduced me to the music of a singer-songwriter she repeatedly heard on the radio during a trip to Italy a couple of years ago.  Turns out the performer is not Italian at all, but rather Australian.  Her name is Gabriella Cilmi (chil-mee) and her first album, Lessons to be Learned was released in the UK in 2008. A second, "Ten," came out in March of this year, also in the UK. "Lessons to be Learned" includes both acoustic and more plugged-in arrangements, all of which suit her smoky voice well. The first time I heard her, she reminded me of Amy Winehouse.  Apparently, I'm not alone; that comparison is often made.  Other female singers who might come to mind when listening to Cilmi include Sara Bareilles and Colbie Caillat .

Gabriella Cilmi is indeed a very good singer and I have her added as one of my favourites. Lessons to be learned is a great album and shows entirely what a huge talent she is.
