Not since Marianne Faithfull took Ruby Tuesday and left her own indelible mark, has a Rolling Stones track been appropriated in such a way that you almost forget it’s origins. It is with chance and risk that an artist attempts to cover a song and make it solely their own – but with such creative flair in her own work, Kristy takes ‘Miss You’ to such heights that when the words fall from her mouth, you know there is an anguish beneath her undeniably unique voice.
Growing up listening to Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder, Kristy learnt the heart and soul of the performer from the honest, down’n’dirty originals – but maintaining a sense of vitality and reserved grace. She embodies an energy and soul that shakes you to the core, and it is this guile and passion that creates a unique contradiction which makes her a luminous stage presence. Her jazzy acoustic leanings entice audiences with whom she is becoming increasingly popular.
