Leeann Skoda - "Still"

Photo via Facebook

I discovered Leeann Skoda when Jason Hawk Harris referred to her as his "sideman as of late," and mentioned her newly released single, "Still." I think we all owe Harris a thank you, because "Still" is absolutely lovely. Skoda has crafted a song that isn't quite country, isn't quite folk, and isn't quite pop. Instead it includes elements of all three, but too much of each to truly be called any of them. (Her Facebook page calls it "... dreamy music for strange times.") It's a simple song in its beauty. The majority of the song is just Skoda's voice and guitar, but it sounds completely lush and fleshed out. That's thanks to Skoda's voice, which is stunning.

You can listen to "Still" below. For more on Leeann Skoda, check out the artist's website.
