Kristal - Silhouette
When starting a record label, it is advised to make a splash with your first signing to get things started off on the right foot (not that I have a label or anything). Perhaps that is why Tyrese decided to make Kristal the first artist on his indie label, Voltron Recordz. Ms. Lyndriette, formerly a member of the now defunct R&B group RichGirl, shows she has the chops to stand on her own two on Silhouette. Inspired by a new love, Kristal wows with her powerful yet sultry and feathery vocals. Most noticeably, she does an excellent job showcasing her range and “pop” without oversinging the production work of Brandon “Bam” Alexander. If Silhouette has gotten your interest, be sure to keep Kristal on your radar; her debut album will be released next summer.
