When all the dust settles, this may be one of the most influential musicians of the late 20th century, says Moving Pebble.
This person's influence reaches such diverse groups and individuals as Bjork, Prince, Tori Amos, Madonna, Juice Newton, KT Tunstall, Clannad, Jeff Buckley, George Michael, Sarah McLachlan, The Counting Crows, Elvis Costello, Judy Collins, Diana Krall, Eva Cassidy....the list literally stretches out through shadow and light, from the roses to the clouds. There were hits, and misses...a travelogue that runs as fast as any wild thing does, that is bound to need taming, like a tiger.
Painting or singing, piano or guitar (#72!--higher than Bonnie!), there is electricity in the judge's chamber when this one starts to shine.
And as for judgment...nine times a winner and over 38 years!!
Who is it?
