Kina Grannis' "Stairwells" CD Review and Giveaway (Autographed)

I can honestly say that before being contacted to review Kina Grannis' CD, I had never heard of her before.  I am a mother of young children and I have been completely out of the music loop.  But after listening to one of her songs on YouTube, I was really excited to get my hands on the entire album.  Kina Grannis is an extremely talented young artist.  "Her music is sweet and melancholy, but always filled with hope."  For those of you who haven't heard her sing before, I would describe her sound as a mixture between Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliat.   My girls and I listened to her entire album within a day and moved it to our car so we could listen to it whenever we are out and about.

Kina joined YouTube in 2007 to enter a music video into a contest.  "A few months later, her video for "Message From Your Heart" aired during the Superbowl and its 97 million viewers...".  Since then she has continued to post videos on YouTube, released and re-released her debut album Stairwells (the re-release was a remixed and remastered version with 4 new songs), and performed to sold out shows, including 2010's Lilith Fair, throughout North America.







With over 330,000 YouTube subscribers and 115,000 Facebook Followers, Kina Grannis is an internet sensation.  If you want to see what you've been missing, swing on over to Kina's YouTube Page and watch some of her wonderful videos.  You will be able to enjoy some original and cover songs.    

Want to own a copy of Stairwells?    I have two autograph copies of Stairwells to giveaway to you all.  To enter, simply visit Kina's YouTube Page and browse around.  Tell me something you love about her music or a favorite song.  Don't forget to leave an email address so that I can contact you if you are the winner.

I have heard Kina Grannis before, but I enjoyed her You Tube page. I liked how "peppy" the music was. It made me feel cheerful, and I wanted to dance along while I listened. I would love to win a copy of the CD!

Hi Kel,
I haven't been over for awhile, but wanted you to know that I've completed my move from Blogger to WordPress--I'm so excited! and hope you'll come over and see my new look (and subscribe by email, so you don't miss a thing).
There are people in Bloggy-land who I feel as though, you know, I could call them "friend" and you're one of those. I'm grateful for getting to know you a little, and your allowing me to post a guest recipe over here:)
Hope you're doing great! and hope you'll stop by soon.
Blessings,
Wendy
