    A bit like a mix between Roísín Murphy and Cerys Matthews - the quirkiness of the former and the biting lyricism and timbre of the latter. Thoroughly original though.

    If I didn't have Voodoo Chic back in high school, I'm not sure I would appreciate music as much today

    Just stumbled upon "Individual" by chance. "Criminally under-heard" is all too true. Great stuff.

    I second Shady's thoughts on both 'Metropolitan'' and 'Ecohero' - well worth checking them out!

    She is a superb artist. I finally bought 'Metropolitan' last week - in my humble opinion, it's her best work yet. And to anyone else who loves Helicopter Girl, I strongly URGE you seek out the album 'Ecohero' by Ambisonic (released 1997). It's essentially Jackie Joyce and somebody else, and a quirky, eco-conscious concept album that I regularly return to. For trivia fans, it also features the origin of her 'Helicopter Girl' moniker. :) It's a bit of a tricky one to find, but it's well worth the effort.
