Former frontwoman for The Backyard Betties and backing vocalist and instrumentalist for Baltimore indie folksters like Soft Cat and Andy Abelow, Sianna Plavin recently moved to Providence, RI and is readying her first EP. Her songs are gentle and plaintively earnest, reminiscent of Loneliest in the Morning-era Julie Doiron. They wrap you up like a warm blanket in winter.
