makes a homecoming appearance at Barnes & Noble this afternoon. The singer-songwriter just released her second album, hopeful.romantic, and the bookstore chain is the only place you can find it for the next six months. Like Starbucks, Barnes & Noble is branching out: Stahls CD is the first exclusive release in the stores Discover Great New Music program, and its a winner. Armed with acoustic guitar and wispy loops, Stahl, who now lives in L.A., writes love songs that dont get lost in the stars. Shes a romantic, but shes also a realist.
