Kirsten Price

British soul songstress Kirsten Price is continuing to kick it stateside in '09. She'll be showcasing material from her critically acclaimed 2008 debut release Guts and Garbage as well as her second solo album, slated for release later in the year. Hot Indie News wrote, “Price is in a whole different league. The music is hot, Price's sexy, sultry voice is hot, and the album just sizzles…. Everything about Price, from the voice to the lyrics, are all her own. The mix of musical genres, everything from classical to jazz to r&b, blend together effortlessly.” A recent graduate of Berklee College of Music, Rebecca Muir is a rising star boasting work with Grammy-winning producer George Massenburg and Grammy-winning superstar Linda Ronstadt, a live duet with rocker Steve Winwood, and a performance of the national anthem at Fenway Park. Amalgamating pop, jazz, and soul with a heavy focus on witty lyricism and the blues, Muir's music features her rich, multi-textured voice with its remarkable power, range, and sensitivity. Her debut EP is due out in the spring of 2009. Have you ever wondered what honey sounds like? Sarah Brindell is a siren who, behind the piano, performs a melodious blend of original funk, jazz, Latin-influenced jams, and soul that's a remedy for the ears... and the sweet tooth, too. Her new EP Dandelion is available on iTunes on January 15.

The Neil Cowley Trio

The Neil Cowley Trio first burst into our consciousness with its outstanding debut album Displaced. Fizzing with the energy of rock and the surging dynamics of dance music, it accidentally placed Cowley and his trio at the forefront of the "post-jazz" scene alongside such similar spirits as Acoustic Ladyland, Jaga Jazzist, Fulborn Taversham, and EST.
