Penning her own Baker's Dozen of albums that shaped her career as both a member of Lamb and a solo artist, the singer picks 13 records that represent her "soul-music", following the release of theyesandeye


Crosby, Stills & Nash – Crosby, Stills & Nash
With the opening notes of this album I'm back in our family home at the age of about 11. It signifies summer days in fields and discovering harmony and a feeling of something out there I wanted. This is such a timeless classic: released in '69 but undeniably the inspiration for new folk acts like Fleet Foxes, Midlake et al and still sounding fresh and true to this day.

Standout tracks for me: 'Helplessly Hoping', 'Wooden Ships' and the contender for the most romantic song ever, 'Lady Of The Island'.
