    Thanks for posting, LouisaJessie!

    I really think this is an appropriate artist to bring to the board, because she is one of the best examples of a UK singer who seems to share several of Carrie's own views on life and music. Philippa is from Yorkshire, and much of her singing and songwriting is inspired by her Christian faith (she supports mental health charities, and one of her posts on Twitter read "To despise yourself is to despise what God loves more than life.") She's had about five independent albums out - the two songs you posted come from her latest, "Come Back Fighting", on which she co-wrote most tracks ("Off the Wagon" is a solo write by her). The two songs show something of her stylistic range, since "The Hero" veers to Pop/Contemporary Christian, while "Off the Wagon" is solid Country/Gospel in style. She finishes the album with two covers - Hank Williams' classic "I Saw The Light" (which Carrie briefly referenced in SITW), and Brenda Lee's "Always on My Mind" (which Carrie sang with Willie Nelson)

    This is a link to her Hank Williams cover (though the sound quality is not the best, I'm afraid)

    And this is her lovely version of one of the most traditional songs in the Gospel repertoire, "Wayfaring Stranger"
