Sibylle Baier

20 11 2011

When mentioning female folk based singers, there’s only a small amount that are worthy of your attention. Joan Baez is one, Sibylle Baier is another. She’s a German folk singer who manages to break your heart with her haunting voice. Her lyrics are full of sadness. When a person does this, they can sound quite self involved and whiney. Nobody wants that. Sibylle Baier does it in a way that makes you want to just hold her away from all the pain and hurt in the world. As sad as some of her songs are, they are truly some of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard.

If you love artists such as Cat Power, you should hopefully love Sibylle Baier. Even if you don’t love Cat Power, hopefully you can still appreciate the talent here.
