Expect big things from Adelaide singer/songwriter Krista Polvere. Who, I hear you ask?
If you were lucky enough to catch their recent tour, you may have seen Krista supporting Ryan Adams and the Cardinals around the country. But you might not know this local lass has spent the last eight months impressing industry bigwigs in New York City.
The backdrop of this thriving city gave Krista the inspiration to write and independently record her debut album, Here Be Dragons. Obviously Ryan Adams is a big fan of Krista’s work. He co-wrote many of the album’s tracks, and played on several.
The album’s star connections don’t stop there. The album was produced by Grammy Award winner Malcolm Burn, who’s worked with Emmylou Harris, Rachel Yamagata, and Bob Dylan to name a few.
Here Be Dragons will be released in Australia early in 2008. Krista’s currently negotiating with labels in the US and UK for a release there. American fans can hear a sneak peek of the album when she supports Ray LaMontagne on his US tour early next year.
