• Basia Bulat

Tomorrow night Canadian singer Basia Bulat returns to Schubas, playing music from the terrific new Heart of My Own (Rough Trade). A couple years ago, when I first heard her fine debut album, Oh, My Darling, I was immediately hooked by her strong, distinctive voice, which shaped the pretty, delicate melodies with unassuming confidence. The arrangements were simple but effective: mostly acoustic guitar, piano, cello, violin, and sparse percussion.
