The name in the title of this post is one you’ve probably never heard before; just remember that later when you start seeing it in more places. Anna Scouten is a folk singer-songwriter from Montreal who has built quite the following on her YouTube channel over the past several years for her sporadic covers of songs such as Bon Iver‘s “Skinny Love“ and “Blood Bank.” The comments section on her videos tend to focus on her physical and vocal beauty, but Scouten has always been more than just a pretty face and voice. Today is the defining moment of that. With her debut self-titled EP, the young college student is breaking out and proving herself as a full-fledged artist. On the five-song set, she churns out four original songs and a cover of “Intuition” by fellow Canadian Feist, all with focus and execution that proves she’s ready and able to move beyond the phase of cover stardom. Below, you’ll find a full stream of the EP. If you like what you hear, be sure to head over to iTunes or Bandcamp to support.
