Krystle set for Next Big Thing
Krystle Warren hails from Kansas City and learned to play the guitar by listening to Rubber Soul and Revolver. Her tastes range from Rufus Wainwright to Betty Carter, Willie Nelson to Nina Simone and she's toured the US with Martha Wainwright, Zap Mama, Rodrigo & Gabriela and Erykah Badu.
There is no Krystle Warren-shaped pigeon-hole. The last few months have seen her equally at home at the London Jazz Festival's "Jazz Voice" evening at the Barbican alongside the likes of Kurt Elling and Natalie Merchant, supporting country singer Diana Jones at Union Chapel, touring with the high priests of "vocal play" Naturally 7, and appearing alongside the likes of Green Gartside, Teddy Thompson, Lisa Hannigan and Vashti Bunyan on the Way To Blue - The Songs of Nick Drake tour last week. This February Krystle Warren returns to London to play HMV's 'Next Big Thing' with Rox and Andreya Triana at the Jazz Cafe.

Also in February, Krystle Warren will play a short run of late-night sessions at the Soho Theatre. Although accustomed to the arenas of theatre and comedy, the Soho Theatre has rarely before opened its doors to a live music act. It is therefore fitting that Krystle Warren will take the stage, combining her extraordinary vocal talent with a strong personality and charismatic stage presence, to set in motion a future of live music at the Soho Theatre. This is a rare opportunity to see Krystle perform in a small studio theatre with an intimacy befitting to her musical style.
