A Better Life

A Better Life

PB8 003

Kristina Westin’s debut album is kin to Emmylou, Dolly and Norah. Twelve songs in the key of life and longing. Stripped-down, chiseled guitar-driven country beat and crisp piano ballads.

The guitar and bass set the tone and Charlie Watts lends his rawest drum beat. A rare mix of Nordic melancholy and urban verve.
