Girl from the Midwest, born 33 years ago in Kansas City, Krystle Warren is a self-taught artist, poet, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. This strong character – reminding us of Meshell Ndegeocello – this outstanding artist blends all the genres she likes thanks to her high-quality vocal technique. There are sparkles of Nina Simone, Tracy Chapman, Joan Armatrading and Erykah Badu in the damsel’s voice, whose hybrid and variegated work embodies the soul of African American music. Krystle Warren transcends the styles with her new album Three The Hard Way. Protest-songs with powerful groove, sharpened lyrics about politics and religion with an intense spiritual reach. Acting as a light in these dark times, the lady takes us by her intuitive musicality in a moving solo performance.
