I think you all should check out rising star Kina Grannis (no relation). Grannis is currently 24, and a California native of French, Scottish and Japanese descent. Most of all, she’s a really cool folksy/acoustic artist with one heck of a voice. You’d probably find her quite easily on YouTube, considering she has literally performed dozens of covers ranging from the likes of Leonard Cohen, John Mayer, and Michael Jackson. She currently has a loyal following, with nearly 30,000 fans on her Facebook page. Grannis been signed with Interscope Records since 2008, and her debut album Stairwells, is said to come out soon this year.
