Tuesday's Pick

Song: "Don't Forget Hallelujah"

Artist: Naomi Greenwald

CD: Darkbloom

Genre: Pop

Some singers' voices serve as the musical equivalent of chicken soup or oatmeal cookies: There's just something about the sense of good-natured warmth they evoke. Naomi Greenwald isn't a big name — not yet, anyway — but when she sings, that comfort is unmistakable.

Greenwald has an easygoing manner and a calm, clear voice that's instantly reassuring. Nowhere is that more apparent than in "Don't Forget Hallelujah," one of the standouts from her album Darkbloom. A subtle call to hang in there amid trying times, the song finds Greenwald functioning as a guardian angel more powerful than the ones she references at the song's outset – she's like a gentle but strong hug in the midst of a storm. Like Emmylou Harris, Greenwald possesses a girlish voice with steely strength and an old soul's wisdom and grace.
