Kristal West - And That's Why

Kristal West - And That's Why
Last year Australia’s longest running Indigenous music label CAAMA Music ran a nationwide competition to uncover a new crop of female Aboriginal singer-songwriters. Titled the Alukura Competition (Alukura meaning ‘women' in the Arrernte language) CAAMA selected 8 talented and passionate women from all corners of Australia to record a compilation album at their studios in Alice Springs. During the recording process the women participated in music business workshops, were mentored by musical duo the Stiff Gins [Nardi Simpson and Kaleena Briggs], and connected to the country and culture of Central Australia.

For most of these women it was their first time recording in a professional studio and from this invaluable experience they received knowledge and contacts to support and grow a successful musical career. The result is The Alukura Compilation an album that will feature a song from each of the eight women to be released by CAAMA Music in early 2016.

Right now, to give listeners a taste of the talent, two artists have been selected to release their singles in the lead up to the album; Kristal West [QLD] with her song And That’s Why [and Alice Skye with You Are The Mountains – also on AIRIT].

About this track...

A classic R’n’B soulful pop tune with lush harmonies, soft melodies and a strong piano driven chorus.
A vocal that soars; think Alicia Keys, Ngaarii, Lianna La Havis, Ed Sheeran and Pia Mia.
