If you're a female singer and list Ricky Lee Jones, Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones as influences or references, I'm won over already. Elsa Kopf (aka Za) is a friend of Pierre Peppermoon (who helped with the artwork for Za's debut-cd), also a nice reference. Her gentle, very Joni-and-Ricky'ish songs make you not want to get up from your couch, but lay down some more, reaching for the remotecontrol to play those innocent and easy sounding songs over and over. Most songs on Acoustic Joy are in English, but she finishes with two French ditties. Like them best, of course.
Za - Mai en moi
Za - Larmes de caramel
