Now she's touring behind a strong debut album, "Sea Sew," that's winning comparison to eccentric female musicians ranging from Jane Birkin to Edie Brickel to Bjork.

Chicago, starting at 9 p.m. Friday [Feb. 27] and featuring the entrancing grooves of Golden Filter, Yello Fever and Rocktapussy itself.
