Check Out Theresa Andersson - she'll make you smile

Theresa Andersson (born 1972, Gotland, Sweden) is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who has has performed and recorded with several well known New Orleans Musicians, including Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, The Meters and Betty Harris. Theresa’s idea for her most recent release was borne while touring Sweden, when she met with producer Tobias Froberg. With little prodding, like-minded Tobias flew to New Orleans in the fall of 2007, where the two recorded Hummingbird, Go! in Theresa’s kitchen. Theresa played most of the instruments on the album, with exception on two duets: one with New Orleans producer Allen Toussaint, and the other with Norwegian Singer Ane Brun. The album was mixed by Linus Larsson (Peter, Bjorn and John, Mercury Rev). Source: Wikipedia. Also check out this video podcast of her live performance on KCRW. Below a recent appearance on COB.
