Friday Favorites 3/7/2014
Why is it that my vocation (engineering) likes to remain dormant until I commit to something in my avocation (blogging) like posting every day in 2014? Why is it that I can’t just say damn the avocation for a day or two and so what if I’ve posted 178 Friday Favorites in a row? Obsessed? Dedicated? Committed? Should be committed? Does it matter? There will be a Friday Favorite today, albeit a short one.
I came across Erin Bode’s CD, Over and Over, back in the days of Borders Bookstores, when I could wander the music section, listening to the latest releases. It was love at first listen. Her website gets it right: Vocalist Erin Bode (pronounced BOH-DEE) has a beautiful, crystal clear voice that is too exquisite to miss.

Her distinctive repertoire and crossover appeal – evoking comparisons to Eva Cassidy and Norah Jones – have proven equally at home in grand venues or relaxed clubs. Listen to this, Perfect World, from the Over and Over CD:
I thought Erin Bode was destined for stardom and I wasn’t the only one:
She’s this week’s Friday Favorite … the loveliest voice I’m willing to bet you’ve never heard of. One more, Don’t Take Your Time from her debut album of the same name.
Enjoy and have a great weekend.
