Kristilyn Robertson

Album Title: The Uncut Version
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Folk
Tinkling piano keys in merry measure and fresh out of university, twenty-something Alberta native Kristilyn Robertson first got the urge to live the glamorous life of a musician after stumbling upon Tori Amos ten years ago. On "The Uncut Version", Robertson's debut long player, the songstress is at her best with upbeat numbers like "I Like It Like That" and "Hit Of The Century" where her warbling voice uplifts instead of detracts. While Robertson's vocals leave something to be desired, her lyrics at least are headed in the right direction. Mysterious and oh-so-tragic, she tries hard at playing her seniors Amos and Sarah Slean. "We're fighting this battle like we're fighting a war" atop of whirling piano and crying violins: looks like we've got another tragic/beauty on our hands.
