On My Radar: Kreesha Turner

Kreesha Turner is a Canadian R&B and pop singer.

I saw Kreesha perform yesterday and was really impressed with her voice, stage presence and the on point performance from her dancers/backup singers and keyboardist.

Her music has been featured on show like Lipstick Jungle, Gossip Girl, Entourage, The Hills and others. She sang “Bounce With Me”, “I’m Shattered” and “Don’t Call Me Baby”. Her influences are Billy Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Peggie Lee, Candi Staton, Amel Larrieux, Jill Scott, Beyonce, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight, etc.

Her album “Passion” is coming out in the states 10.14.08 and 08.12.08 in Canada.

There is a good interview with her on the MuchMusic site.
