OK, just to get this out of the way right at the outset, yes, Hampton native Annalisa Nutt is a distant relative of former head Hog football coach Houston Dale Nutt. Key word: distant. It's not like he comes to family reunions or anything.

Back to the matter at hand — Nutt's spectral, spare songs, which include somber meditations on topics such as negotiating the sometimes choppy waters of love, wrestling with her faith and other evergreen singer/songwriter topics. Her voice is clear as a bell one moment, smoky and subdued the next.

Check out the somber "I'm Sorry," which displays the full range of Nutt's vocal abilities, with Joni-like vocal trills and haunting reverb.
