Kina Grannis "Stairwells" CD Review + Giveaway

If you haven't heard Kina Grannis sing yet, you're missing out!  Kina is a singer/songwriter, whose album Stairwells was recently released (April 2011).  It debuted on Billboard's Top 200 and at #2 on the New Artists chart. 

Kina's current single from Stairwells, entitled The One You Say Goodnight To, is available as a FREE mp3 download on her website!  Want a sneak peek?  You can listen to the track right here on My KC Mommy, too!

I was given the opportunity to review Stairwells - and I have to say, it has quickly become one of my most-played albums.  Kina's songs are a beautiful mix of catchy and reflective.  There are even a few that I find calming enough to be lullabies - and since there is a lot of lullaby-singing in my house right now, they're perfect!

I think my favorite tracks on Stairwells are Valentine, In Your Arms, and the single found above - The One You Say Goodnight To.  What I love most about Kina's music is that it is original and melodious - which, these days, is pretty refreshing!  I don't listen to a lot of chart-topping music as, most of the time, I don't even consider it to be music. I prefer to find the hidden gems in artists like Kina who have true talent and are willing to share that with the world! 

I highly recommend this CD and encourage you to give it a trial listen on Kina's site or on her YouTube channel!  If you like what you hear, you can find the Stairwells CD at Amazon.  OR, right now the Stairwells (MP3 Download Exclusive Version) is just $6.49 at Amazon - definitely a bargain!
