With her soothing vocals and down-to-earth approach, British singer-songwriter Kate Walsh is quickly making a name for herself. She began showcasing her music on MySpace through her own record label, and soon persuaded iTunes to sell her debut. When "Talk of the Town" became iTunes' "Single of the Week," her following grew, and labels began to clamor for her services.

The recent Tim's House is rooted in the acoustic tradition of Joni Mitchell's fertile early-'70s material, as well as the pop sensibilities of Fleetwood Mac.
