My music playlist for today (June 13, 2012 edition)

As I’ve been thinking of female singers to spotlight during my “ladies’ week” playlists, one thing that I’ve been looking for is versatility.  Could each singer step outside of their genre and make their mark in another?

Ella Fitzgerald … certainly.  Carrie Underwood … she’s done it in a short time.  Gayle Moran … absolutely.  Now, when it comes to progressive rock and Annie Haslam, you have someone who fits right in with that criteria.

With Annie, the fashion world’s loss has been the music world’s gain.  She started out as a fashion student, but a sister-in-law heard her singing along to the end of a television show and advised her to do something with her voice.  She studied with an opera singer, developed a five-octave range, auditioned with the progessive rock band Renaissance … and the rest is history.

Annie is another one of those singers whose voice has been described as “ethereal.”  With a five-octave vocal range, it almost has to be that.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at https://viewfrommiddleclass.wordpress.com/ and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at http://thecrossovermusicchannel.blogspot.com/ that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/daddysangbassdude2 for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
