When our staff first heard the haunting rendition of “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” while producing our special weather podcast this week, they asked who is that singer?
San Francisco’s Mitchelle Tanner sang her first notes before she learned to speak, picked up her first guitar at age 8, wrote her first song at 12 and played her original material in public for the first time at age 17. She released her CD, The Dark Horse Sessions, in 2005. A bonus cut on the CD is the highly recognizable “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” lending her own haunting voice to this Gordon Lightfoot classic ballad.
