Maybe you haven’t heard of Rumer until now, but we think she’s an artist that’s going to get a lot of attention in the US. Formerly of the indie-folk band La Honda, her solo project showcases her voice, which has been described as eerily similar to the voice of Karen Carpenter. The first single, “Slow,” from her debut album, Seasons of My Soul, jumped out from MySpace enough to create a healthy buzz. Facebook helped launch the career of Rumer too, as her manager found her by posting the question: “Who is the most underrated person you know?” When five separate people replied with “Rumer,” record labels and management companies started chasing her.
