60 Paloma Faith Paloma Faith

My favourite female singer at the moment and underrated. Paloma has a unique style and brillant voice, with the modern charts dominated by many so-so average singers like Rihanna with generic songs, Paloma is very refreshing Her 2nd album 'Fall To Grace' from 2012 is epic and beautiful. 'Picking Up The Pieces', '30 Minute Love Affair', 'Blood Sweat & Tears', 'Just Be', 'Let Your Love Walk In', 'Never Tear Us Apart'.. All the albums tracks are fantastic.
