"Cruel to know that you can move about freely
When I'm still caught up in love's cage" - From Still Here
My Opinions and Recommendations
Kina has a great R & B sound. She gets little to no radio play, and with many artists like her, I wonder why that is. She has a very loud, raspy voice that could be just as suited for a rock band. This is why it is such an original sound... because she uses this voice for R & B. She has one self-titled album. The opening numbers are great, especially Girl From the Gutter, and I Love You. I also really like the track Me.
If you like Kina, and are looking for others you might like, I suggest Alicia Keys, who has the same R & B style and soul. You should also check out Nelly Furtado's Whoa Nelly! CD. Who has an edginess similar to Kina's. Finally, check out Res - How I Do album, which is slightly more recent.
