KT Tunstall vs. Joan Osborne

I downloaded a couple of KT Tunstall's songs from The Late Greats the other day and although I had heard her / seen her on VH-1 (please forgive me), I hadn't really heard her, if you know what I mean. Upon taking a closer listen, I was instantly struck with the realization that she reminded me of Joan Osborne, most well known for her song One Of Us. I think KT rocks a little more than Joan's more religious/soulfull bent, but their voices sound remarkably similar. Take a gander and see what you think.

Joan Osborne - One Of Us : Live Acoustic (originally on Relish)

Joan Osborne - Right Hand Man : Relish

Joan Osborne - Spider Web : Relish

I did a Google of the 2 artists and I found your site. I agree that Joan Osborne and KT tunstall sound alike. When I first heard KT Tunstall's Black Horse & the Cherry Tree on the radio I would have sworn that it was Joan Osborne and I thought she had repackaged herself. As far as I am concerned KT Tunstall and Joan Osborne are very similiar and yet different and their voices compliment each other I love their sound. I just think is great that 2 artists sound so close to each other and each came to their sound from different places. How interesting it would be to see them perform together and possibly colaborate for a few tunes.
