Discovery: Elaine Kristal

Here’s one to get your blood pumping this Friday morning. Elaine Kristal is an alternative R&B singer songwriter from New York City, USA whose ode to sex first thing caught my attention. It’s called Nasty In The Morning.

Sometimes musical inspiration can come from the most base acts, and that’s exactly what you get from Nasty In The Morning. Elaine approaches the subject with a certain profundity and poetry though and her storytelling flair elevates the topic. All the while the track’s smooth, seductive groove will have you smiling.

Elaine is inspired by musical legends like Boyz II Men, Blackstreet and Prince but it was through voyages of self-discovery that she was able to find her own voice and sound. You can check out Nasty In The Morning below.
