Songs from a
Dead Man's Couch
(2006)

buy cd

Thanks for stopping by! Please check out Kristy’s latest release, Songs From a Dead Man’s Couch, entitled so because Krüger wrote most of the songs on a second-hand couch, whose previous owner passed away.

It includes ten of Kristy's lyrically dark originals, and a driving, train-beat version of Depeche Mode's "Never Let Me Down Again” that “recasts the song as a spooky hayride” (Americana UK).

Krüger fuses traditional jazz, and country, occasionally mixing alternative Americana and electronics, forming a genre she likes to call: Ameritronica.

Great for fans of Wilco, Rilo Kiley and Lucinda Williams, The Dallas Morning News describes Kristy’s sound as a “female Tom Waits, produced by Daniel Lanois,” and the release also earned her a 2006 Dallas Observer Music Award for Best Female Singer from Dallas’ leading entertainment weekly.

Songs from a Dead Man's Couch is dedicated in memory of Jim Bible - thank you for the couch!

kristy's disclaimer




“Kristy was one of my favorite interviews this year. Way more comments about her than say, our coverage of Iraq.”
-Ira Glass, Host of Public Radio International’s This American Life

“Her voice has a timeless quality to it and whatever setting she places it into…like a hot hand in the small of your back leading you to the dance floor, you are powerless to resist.”
-David Cowling, Americana UK, the largest resource for Americana in the UK

  “She has grown into one of the most eclectic singers in Dallas…Imagine a female Tom Waits, produced by Daniel Lanois.”
-Thor Christensen, The Dallas Morning News

"One of the best albums of the year in a seemingly tired singer/songwriter genre...Folks, this is not your ordinary singer/songwriter strum and hum stuff..."
-Bruce Warren, Program Director, WXPN, NPR's World Cafe
