Kristina Train | A New Voice from the American South

From the very first note on "Spilt Milk", Kristina Train's debut album on Blue Note Records, you know that you're in the presence of a strong and confident singer with a vulnerability that keeps the ears and heart open. The similarity in style and tone to Dusty Springfield, one of her idols, is uncanny. The old school arrangements with strings and well placed back up vocals recall a sound that few employ. Kristina is from Savannah, Georgia, and in a Dusty-story-in-reverse, she went to London to record with British producers/songwriters Jimmy Hogarth and Eg White who have worked with Adele, Duffy and Corinne Bailey Rae.
