There’s another British import ready to make waves stateside. Now a Brooklyn-based singer, Kirsten Price (not to be confused with the porn star of the same name) delivers her brand of pop, rock, and soul to the masses with the release of Guts and Garbage. Citing a range of influences (Bach, Prince, Motown), Price offers a diverse collection of tunes that offer just enough variety to escape any comparisons to those other British female soul singers. There’s a bit of trip pop on the album in the way of “5 Days Old,” odes to old soul (the retro leaning “Bring Me Back”), and even a little bit of contemporary pop with tracks like “Let Me Go.”

Price co-wrote every track on the album, while producer Fred Sargolini (of the hip-hop/drum’n’bass duo Ming & FS) helms the bulk of the production. It’s a solid debut offering from a capable singer with a genuine interest in making a name for herself. And with Price gaining the attention of respected musicians like Raphael Saadiq (he produces the track “Freedom”), she’s well on her way.
