“Kierston White, a Shawnee, Oklahoma native, has a brand new CD. ‘Don’t Write Love Songs’ is a collection of self-penned tunes. There is no cookie cutter approach here.
A graphic artist by day, this aspiring singer/songwriter is onto something.
This is a very good first work.
She performs solo and with the group known collectively as the Tequila Songbirds. ( Kierston White, Ali Harter, Camille Harp, Kaitlin Butts, Elizabeth Forsythe, and others). These women make fervent music that generate momentous energy everywhere they perform. Each of these women are solo performers in their own right, together they pack a powerful punch.
She wields her guitar like a woodsman’s axe, and in softer moments like a carving knife. Her dynamics are well-placed.
The occasional heavy vibrato of her voice quivers with the sensibility of a broken heart breaking forward through the fog and mist of lost love and new freedom.
