Zee Avi

The 23-year-old, Borneo-born Zee Avi possesses a sultry, smoky voice that is a reminiscent of Norah Jones. If you think Jones sounds sleepy, Avi sounds even sleepier. On her self-titled debut, she sings herself to slumberland with incredibly banal lyrics: “My phone was on silent / I was at the gym.” Accompanied by a drowsy acoustic picking guitar, “Slow Hands” and “No Christmas for Me” are perfect for insomnolence.
