It's difficult (and futile) to place Krystle Warren in a singular box within the ever-growing list of "genre". What's clear is that voice; a contralto that can growl and weep within the span of a song. Originally from Kansas City, now based in France, Krystle released her first album, Circles, in 2009 to critical acclaim. The set of twelve tunes fueled by the virtuosity of her band, The Faculty, featured "Title Track", a song that would feature on Later... With Jools Holland. The ambitious follow-up, Love Songs (2012) wowed critics and peers alike, with the Guardian calling it, "...one of the best albums of the year." Featuring twenty-seven musicians performing live, the double album, adorned with strings, horns, and glorious harmonies, was re-released as a vinyl collector edition to celebrate its fifth anniversary. Presently, we bask in the glow of her latest offering, Three the Hard Way. Recorded in France, the raw, charged selection showcases Warren on drums, bass, piano, guitar, and lap steel. Co-produced with long time friend, Ben Kane, (D'Angelo, PJ Morton, Cece Winans), Three the Hard Way finds Krystle revisiting her musical roots. Exploring gospel, work song, blues, and folk, the album notably tells the tale of the Tulsa Race riot of 1921 in "Red Clay". "I grew up Southern Baptist, with an incredible choir at church," says Warren. "I started listening to old recordings of various gospel choirs, the blues. I began learning the language again. It's always been a part of me." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=349000 Mercury Lounge Mercury Lounge
