To call Liz Green a one-off talent is something of a drastic under-statement. The 28-year-old singer-songwriter from the Wirral sounds like no one else - at least no one else from this day and age. Her voice has a fragility that recalls scratchy early Blues recordings, though the songs here are from an eccentric storytelling tradition that's English all the way (Green's ancestors apparently include rag-and-bone men and executioners, so no messing).

Though her delightful debut single, "Bad Medicine", was released four years ago, Green has finally got herself to a recording studio to deliver a full album's worth of goods, O Devotion!, which is out on 28 November. She's also touring the UK right now - see her myspace page for details - though you can see what she's about from her appearance on last Friday's episode of The Review Show, below. Fingerpickin' good.
