She is currently recording her debut 6 song EP with 3x GRAMMY-nominated producer Rob Kleiner (Sia, David Guetta and Cee Lo Green) in Los Angeles and Toronto. The music is a blend of influences: jazz, 60’s soul, modern dream pop, Tarantino films and urban production.
Kristen’s retro but current sound reflects her love of timeless Jazz and soul vocalists, and her vivid lyrics portray stories of being a modern woman experiencing the trials of love in 2018.
Kristen was awarded the $10,000 album grant in 2017 from FACTOR (The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings), beating out thousands of other artists from around the country, and was recently hand-selected to perform the National Anthem at the Queen’s Plate.
Before she was a recording artist, Kristen lived in New York and worked in the legendary Brill Building, where she went from coffee girl intern to singing on songs mixed by super-producer Phil Ramone (Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin).
Stayed tuned for her upcoming release!
