Miami singer/songwriter Daphna Rose sounds like a folky lounge singer, blending expressive and insightful lyrical arrangements with her brand of accessible bluesy pop. When she reaches for the chorus of this featured MP3, singing "There's room for a miracle in my life," she seems to channel Elvis Costello. At other times, the song plays like one of those inspirational and grandiose Disney tunes. But once you get over that, you really start to see the medley of influences that inform her music from Bonnie Raitt to Billie Holiday.
Hit the jump to listen to the MP3 and get details of Rose's upcoming show at the Van Dyke.
Daphna Rose performs Tuesday, July 21 at the "Girls and Guitars" night at the Van Dyke Cafe, 846 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach. Show starts at 9 p.m., admission is free. 305-534-3600; vandykecafe.com
