You may have already heard this French-born, Israeli-bred singer-songwriter in the commercial for Mac's new ultrathin Air notebook, where her delightful ditty "New Soul" provides appropriately light and breezy accompaniment. (In a nice bit of synergy, the single has already hit No. 1 on the iTunes chart.) Naim displays more of that gentle, nimble touch on the rest of her exotic U.S. debut, whether she's singing in English or Hebrew, or channeling Joni Mitchell or Sarah McLachlan.
