Kinnie Starr - Sun Again
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Kinnie Starr - Sun AgainA trip-hoppy poet who mixes rap and rock with spoken word and jazzy grooves, Vancouver’s Kinnie Starr is overdue for a major breakthrough. If there’s any justice, it will come with this inspired album. Sun Again boasts a buoyant spirit and a warmer vibe than Starr’s previous outings. Songs like “Soar” reflect her new confidence. And “Alright” and “Dreaming” possess a sensuous, Lauryn Hill-like quality. Most striking are lush, romantic numbers like “Come” and “Amazed,” which reflect real artistic growth. Expect big things from this rare talent.
