Natalie Prass has a beautiful voice, but it’s not a pretty one. She pulls from a nasally register — and that’s hardly an insult. That nasally register projects a strong voice: she holds and sustains each note with perfect control. On “My Baby Don’t Understand Me”, she repeats the words “our love is a long goodbye” to the point that we all want to cry for her: her intonation is pained and careful. It arrested me. And the audience clapped louder for the song than they had all afternoon. –Mike Anderson
