Krystle Warren – Soul-folk-jazz songstress from Kansas City, Missouri. Blessed not only with a voice that slides effortlessly from smoky depths to gilded heights, but also the ability to craft intoxicating songs of love and its loss, and to convey them to an audience with warmth and wit.
“Warren’s talents are extraordinary. She has an octave-hopping voice that glides between languid and urgent, and music that hovers between funk, folk and jazz, between Jeff Buckley and Nina Simone… she’s the real deal” – The Observer.
“Warren’s voice is an extraordinary instrument, murmuring with tenderness at times, growling with intensity at others. It vividly recalls Nina Simone in its depth and smokiness, as well as John Martyn and (Jeff) Buckley in terms of virtuosic variety.” – The Guardian
“… there’s Krystle Warren. You should really give her a listen. You won’t believe what you’re hearing – she’s amazing.” – kd lang
Krystle Warren releases her self-produced ‘A Time To Keep – Love Songs EP’ on August 8th, her first release since 2009’s stunning debut album “Circles”.
The five new tunes on the EP are a sneak peek ahead of two full-length releases and range from the Phil Spectoresque “Forever Is A Long Time” to Krystle’s musical setting of William Blake’s “The Clod And The Pebble” originally written in 1794.
Krystle has been busy producing the twenty-five tracks that will grace her next two albums: “Love Songs: A Time To Embrace” due for release in September and “Love Songs: A Time To Refrain From Embracing” to be released a year later.*
Krystle: “I had been tossing around where I wanted to take the album stylistically for a good while. I’d recently revisited “Dusty in Memphis” and was really keen on “In the Land Of Make Believe”. “Still Bill” was also in heavy rotation, especially, “I Don’t Know”. Paul Simon’s album, “Still Crazy After All These Years”, Colin Blunstone, “One Year”… “
