Review: Kristi Martel - Give Me a Little... (Sealed Lip Records)
Kristi Martel is a breed unto herself in the world of singer songwriters. She sounds like no one else. Unafraid of the quirks in her character, she mines her inner conflicts in an unembarrassing and daring way. Her musical vocabulary is wild and varied without ever being beyond control. The only thing wrong with this album is that it is too short. It is actually a 4 song CD that works to wet the appetite for this smart-hearted artist. -- Patrick Arena, Outvoice & PittsburghOUT
When Kristi Martel was three she sang to salt and pepper shakers atop tables in restaurants.
Her family encouraged her to do this.
Everyone in the restaurant would clap.
So she kept singing and making up harmonies and began piano lessons with a strong desire to be a famous musician.
Today, Kristi Martel\'s sweet presence, stunning vocals, intricate piano rhythms, and fearless songwriting endear audiences nationwide.
\"...love emanates from every note.\" - Vienna Teng
\"Incomparable!\" - Utah Phillips
\"Damn!\" - Cesca Waterfield
Featured on MTV/LOGO, NPR, WERS, and in Curve Magazine, and voted Rhode Island\'s Best Female Alt-Rock Vocalist, award-winning songwriter and avant-soul piano diva Kristi Martel grew up in New England and earned an ASCAP grant and two music degrees (Bard and Mills College) before beginning her touring and recording career in 2000. Her piano playing combines her love of blues dissonance and syncopation with her classical training. Her voice is at once sweet and bitter, able to leap and soar, whisper and rattle, expressive of any emotion she chooses and fluid throughout her multi-octave range. She is visionary in her lyrics and composition, writing her prayers for solace and quirky relationship narratives in the same breath.
Through Sealed Lip Records, Kristi has released six CDs. \"give me a little...\" was the first. It was recorded in two different home studios with two different engineers. It recorded her most popular songs at that time, including the ORIGINAL version of the acclaimed, \"Give,\" aka \"the brain virus,\" and some fans swear that this is still their favorite of Kristi\'s CDs.
