In all the stuff that happened in the last few weeks, I totally missed the release of Kina Grannis' new album, Stairwells!

If you like her stuff, buy it on iTunes - support a true indie artist!

Here's the official video for her single, "Valentine":

Thanks Yellowkid - I have definitely been developing a girl-crush on Priscilla Ahn too - she's great, but I almost like her speaking voice better than her singing voice!  Thanks for sharing =)
whoa whoa whoa whoa yellowkid, I am gonna have to disagree with your comment. Kina is BETTER than a lot of people out there right now. Definitely check out her Stairwells album on itunes. Here are some free downloads -
@kinerds wow you are really big on Kina eh? Even more than I am! It's cool =)
