Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

KRISTEN BUSSANDRI

Diamonds to Dust

2012-05-29

Montreal-based singer Kristen Bussandri writes and plays country-rock that some say is reminiscent of the early string of Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt records of the '70s--before Linda went more pop and Bonnie disappeared for a time (and gratefully returned triumphant). She's listed as one of the five Canadian singers "poised to break it big" in 2012. Whether she does or she doesn't, there are five good songs here, particularly the lead-off ("Pebble"), the bluesy "If You Don't Love Me" and the title track. We at WYCE like to help talented artists like this emerge and there's every reason to extend the kindness north of the border. Michael J. 05/12 R-Contemporary
