Kristina Train - Spilt MilkThis southern U.S. singer has several connections with Norah Jones, including the same record label and a similar penchant for melancholy. But, as a vocalist, Kristina has greater range and power, closer to British contemporaries Duffy and Adele, with whom she shares a producer (Jimmy Hogarth) and a songwriter (Eg White). Kristina’s debut album is full of soul-drenched breakup/makeup songs like “Don’t Remember,” “It’s Over” and the title track, which echoes Adele’s Grammy-winning “Chasing Pavements.”
