1.15 Tift Merritt

When your debut album makes the top ten list of Time magazine and The New Yorker, people start to take notice. That's what happened to singer-songwriter Tift Merritt in 2002, and since then she has continued to win over critics and fans with a voice that's been compared to Emmylou Harris and Joni Mitchell. She's in Auckland to play the Tuning Fork tonight.
