Kina Grannis has a Message from Your Heart

(2/3/08 UPDATE: Kina WON!!! Congrats!!! You can now download the song on iTunes.)

It’s pretty common that I get bulletins on MySpace asking to vote for some independent band or signer in some contest. I usually try to take a few minutes and actually go jump through any little hoops there may be (like registering to the site – hey that’s what those extra hotmail addresses are for right?) to vote for them, because you’ve gotta support the music, right? Not to mention I’d hope someone would do the same for me if I ever needed it. 😉

So recently I saw that Jasmine Ash (who likes you by the way!) was asking people to vote for her friends Dominic Castillo and the Rock Savants for a Doritos sponsored Super Bowl contest.

I went to the page, fully expecting to vote for DCRS, but once there, two things caught my eye – 1) Not too many women represented out of the 10 choices, and 2) The picture of Kina Grannis, looking like she might sing my kind of music.

I checked out her submission video and sure enough, I have a new song to love – Message from Your Heart. It’s sweet, catchy, clever and bubbly (speaking of Bubbly, her voice reminds me of Colbie Caillat).

Feed and email readers may need to come to the blog to see the video

If you like Kina and want to help represent for the girls too, there’s still two days left to vote! You’ll need a MySpace account and you’ll need to allow pop-ups for the contest page if you have them blocked.
If Kina is not your thing, vote for Dominic Castillo and the Rock Savants! They’re cool too, and there IS a girl in the band.

    Jana, COOL! It’s neat to know someone who knows her! What is songswapping exactly? It sounds interesting…
