Here's a great song by an artist you never heard of. She's simply known as Shell.
Although she has other songs as well, If You Love It Let It Go is clearly the best of the lot. It's a remarkably soothing yet somewhat upbeat song. It's perfect for an iPod while walking, or just a lazy summer day sipping iced tea.
Shell sings with an ease and smoothness as if she's at total peace with herself despite the poignancy of the song. Like a cross between Sade and Natalie Merchant.
According to Shell's MySpace page, she's a one woman band and she mostly dabbles in electronic dance music. If You Love It Let It Go is a free download (not from MySpace) and vastly different from most of her other music.
