KIRSTEN THIEN - You've Got Me (2006)
Kirsten Thien, a singer/songwriter based out of the ever-fruitful musical wellspring of New York City, has released her second full-length album, You ve Got Me. A musically literate, compositionally mature endeavor, You've Got Me seamlessly blends supple soul, easygoing pop rock, and blissful blues into a swirl of organic-sounding songs that feature Thien's sultry voice at the forefront. Thien found herself in the Big Apple after taking a job at Columbia University. She had been performing steadily during college, and after earning a finance degree, thought that the Columbia gig would be the perfect day job to balance her schedule and support her musical habit. But as the responsibilities of her job increased and began to conflict with her musical life, she decided that she needed to make music a full time fling. For most people this would be a worrisome, potentially cringe-worthy decision, but You ve Got Me proves this to be not so much of a reckless move. Thien is a natural at songwriting. Weaving her way through the lyrical intricacies of relationships both positive and negative, she seasons her songs with dashes of instrumental differentiation. There s a bed of Hammond organ on a song like "Is This The Love" a flourish of playful horns on "So Far Gone" and finally a mix of both to enhance the dramatic buildup of the beautifully bluesy "If Ever." But throughout, the real star here is Thien's voice. Oddly enough, Kirsten Thien's voice sounds hauntingly similar to Olivia Newton-John's. Only Thien sounds more like what would have happened if ONJ took singing and songwriting lessons from Bonnie Raitt. Thien always manages to show some vocal chops, but never allows it to get in the way of the song itself. She is an artist of endless potential with the talent to back it up, and the result here is a classy collection of timeless tunes. - amazon.com
