Singer-songwriter Kris Berry was born in 1982 on Curacao, where she discovered music at a young age: Patsy Cline and Nina Simone were her main examples. After highschool she moved to Barcelona, where the many street musicians reinforced her growing love for jazz music. With her sparkling mix of Caribbean sounds, smooth country and swinging rhythm & blues she is a rising star, and was the very first artist awarded with the title ‘Soul & Jazz Talent’ by Dutch radiostation Radio 6 in 2011. She released her first EP that same year and got to perform at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam. Last year, she released her debut album, Marbles.
