#238 Tanya Davis – Art

Canadian Tanya Davis earned a level of fame a couple of years back because of this video made by artist Andrea Dorfman, a reading of her poem How To Be Alone set to animation and live action and general goodness. Davis is also a wonderful singer-songwriter and in ‘Art’, from her 2008 album Gorgeous Morning, she finds the perfect blend of all her many talents. It’s a song about the the value of art and the act of creation, and it will chime with anyone who’s ever put their heart into a poem, a painting, a play, a song, a mime, a whistle – or pretty much anything.
