Avant-garde songwriter and piano diva Kristi Martel has recently recorded demos for her next full-length CD, Sacred Whore. From her website: “The work is more jazz and soul, and focuses on the universal in our human experience and our need for inner and world peace.”  The stripped-down demos certainly don’t feel like anything is missing – Kristi’s beautiful voice and vibrant piano fill the space of the stories perfectly.

Longtime readers of Lyrical Venus may remember Kristi from my interview with her about a year and a half ago.  She was coming through town for maybe her third or fourth time or so, but it was the first time in several years since her previous show, so it was nice to catch up with her.  I’m looking forward to hearing what has been happening in Kristi’s world since then.

Here is one little preview of work from the Sacred Whore Demos.  It’s called Gutter Mouth, and was performed at YMCA Theatre Cambridge MA, on October 23, 2008.

Find out more about Kristi and her projects on her website, MySpace or by following her Twitter!

Join me Tuesday from 9-10am Central for a few more holiday songs on Lyrical Venus and then the interview with Kristi! KRUU-LP 100.1 FM here in town, online anywhere in the world! Kristi will be calling around 9:30 Central.
