Emm Gryner is a Canadian woman now resident in Los Angeles.
Her songs tend to be melancholy and confessional and can become a bit much after a while. Nevertheless, I think she is a great talent who will continue to mature.
'Atlas' is more upbeat than most of her work...if you get a chance to see her perform do so, she's very dynamic.
Here is her website: http://www.deaddaisy.com/ - you can order CDs directly from her.
