The soulful, husky, almost Kate Bush-esque voice of Kyla La Grange is powerful and majestic, and a refreshing break from the many slightly 'breathy' singer-songwriters out there at the moment. La Grange has been tipped as 'one to watch' in 2012, and I'm by no means surprised. Heavy Stone (listen below) swells with emotion and soaring vocals, and makes your hairs stand on end. She sings with authority and sophistication, reminding me of Lana Del Rey, however La Grange clearly has her own distinct sound, one that reinforces why her debut album is so greatly anticipated.
La Grange embarks on a tour of the UK this month, starting at the Jericho Tavern in Oxford on April 15th. For more information visit: www.kylalagrange.com
