Only became aware of Imogen Heap recently when I saw a recording of her doing “Coulda Had Religion / Rollin And Tumblin” with Jeff Beck at Ronnie Scotts. Seems, like Stevie Lang, she’s the anonymous female session voice behind so many commercial recordings ? I was intending to check her (and Tal Wilkenfeld) out when I noticed this in the latest TED collection.
I guess to appreciate why the rockin of rollin and tumbling is so knock-out you have to have just heard Imogen do her own Blanket (featuring Jeff Beck) in the same session at Ronnie’s. Voice meets rock.
