The crucial thing to know about Michelle Rumball is that she’s a truly great singer. With a voice that’s sometimes whispery and wavering, sometimes plangent and clear, but always poignant and evocative, Rumball sings from deep wellsprings of emotion, in a way that can’t help but resonate strongly with listeners. As NOW’s Kate Pederson wrote, “I’d pay to hear her sing the phone book.”
