Kirsten Thien - Delicious was produced by Erik Boyd for Screen Door Records

Born in Berlin, Kirsten moved to the United States shortly thereafter, and grew up in Maine; Edward and I met her in the Catskill Mountains of New York where blues fans gathered in Hunter, New York for the Bluestock festival in August 2011. Hearing Kirsten play in an impromptu jam session with Erik Boyd and a few other musicians, we were captivated by her voice and her talent, which was the perfect introduction before listening to the release, Kirsten Thien - Delicious.

Producer Erik Boyd assembled a multi-talented cast of musicians to highlight this spectacular release, making the most of each artist's ability to create a lasting memory for each of the songs. Out of the 13 songs on the release, Kirsten Thien wrote, or co-wrote, eight of them, collaborating with either Erik Boyd or Noel Cohen, and on Get Outta the Funk, Get into the Groove with Erik Boyd and Galia Araci. The other three songs were written by Charlie Feldman and Jon Tiven (Taxi Love), Ida Cox (Wild Women Don't Have the Blues), and Willie Dixon (I Ain't Superstitious).

The lyrics for the Kirstein Thien - Delicious release are captivating, and the music is a delectable backdrop for Kirsten Thien's sultry, honeyed, and enticing vocals. The album is masterful and well-constructed from the opening track, Love That's Made to Share, rich with horns setting the pace, to the last track, Taxi Love (Radio Edit) about a first time frisky romp in the back of a taxi, and telling the driver to "just drive, we'll tell you when we want to leave," that sets the imagination working.

A few of the other great tracks on the release include the title track, Delicious, where tasty lyrics, Kristen's vocals, and great instrumental work would be more than worth the price of the CD if it was the only song on this 13-track release; Please Drive, teasing, pleasing, and tempting featuring Hubert Sumlin; Get Outta the Funk, Get into the Groove perfect for when you need a kick in the pants to change your attitude, accept no pity here; to the flirtatious, Wild Women Don't Have the Blues, which implores, "wild women don't worry, wild women don't have the blues." Kirstein then shifts gears, slows the pace, and takes things nice and easy with Ain't That the Truth. 

Kristen Thien - Delicious is a release that has earned a prominent spot in my collection, for the music, as well as for the heart and soul of the musicians behind it.
