If it isn't already, "timing is everything" ought to be Lenka's motto. After spending time in art school and with Sydney band Decoder Ring, the Australian singer-songwriter (born Lenka Kripac) hopped on a plane for Los Angeles and arrived just in time for what we'd like to call the Feist-icization of pop. The warm, intimate vocals, oh-so-slightly cheeky lyrics and quiet whimsy of the brand of soulful pop-folk popularized by the likes of Ingrid Michaelson and Colbie Caillat suited Lenka just fine. After some early rave reviews but little actual exposure, Lenka's version of the coffee-shop pop trend started to take off with singles like "Follow" and "The Show."
