Kirsten Adamson releases her new single New York Girl. Taken from her eponymously titled current album, it’s just been made Single of the Week on Black Diamond FM.
Kirsten Adamson comes from an historical musical background in Scotland. Growing up, her two main influences were Kate Bush and her father – Stuart Adamson’s band, Big Country. In 1998 her father relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where she would spend her summers and it was here where she first picked up a guitar. Classically trained in voice from age 7, Kirsten has grown to become a wonderfully diverse singer songwriter and her self titled debut album encompasses her eccentricities with class and originality.
After picking up a guitar at age 16, self taught, Kirsten has been writing and recording music ever since. She put her first band, The Gillyflowers together in 2008. The band recorded and self released two EP’s along with racking up a handful of 4 and 5 star live reviews until their split in 2012. Between 2010 and 2011 Kirsten sang and played synthesiser with Scottish Indie group Aberfeldy. She featured on the album ‘Somewhere To Jump From’ and was included in their tour line up for this album. Kirsten often provides session vocals for Scottish hit song maker Bob Heatlie Snr who in return played synthesiser on this single.
Kirsten’s biggest achievement to date is the self release of her debut album. Her passion, hard work and dedication to producing the record is written all over it. From the quality of the recordings through to the art work and media surrounding it. No compromises have been made, despite the limited funds she had to make it happen.
