I believe that was EVO. I think he did a great job. Very classy, just him and the broad.
I don't think he was loud enough though.

I thought the singer kinda sucked.. very nasally [sic] and whiney.. reminded me of past girlfriends. *Was cool to see him tho!!! * Anyone see the amp he was running? was it a Leg?

I know I'll get flamed for this but I think he would have sounded better on a strat-type (single coil) guitar as we was going for that Hendrixy "Little Wing" vibe and ya just gotta love the single coil strat position 4 tone for that kind of riffing. * Didn't seem to quite have the true bell like tones single coil pups provide.

Let the flaming commence!!

well, i stated my feelings on the grammy's in another thread...

I will say, though i am not fond of pop. I like Frutada's voice *and they way she carries the notes.
It is a semi rip off/clone (like so many ppl) of very older Alison Krauss and Edie Brickel and the singer from the Sundays.
(of course, Krausse started that singing style movement..)

I do happen to like the older Edie stuff and deifinalty dig the Sundays older stuff..

I think you're right about the single coil thing rlintz. Maybe that's what I was missing about the whole experience. Maybe he WAS loud enough, just not cutting through like I would have liked him to. The crisp single coil "hendrixy" (good word) would have been perfect.
