ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kristin is a fast rising singer/songwriter from Richmond, Virginia. She blends smart, acoustic rhythms with poetic lyrics into her own brand of folk/rock. Kristin's
well-crafted compositions and unique voice truly set her apart from other artists her age. She picked up the guitar at age 14 and released her first full-length CD "Falling In Line" at 17. In less than a year, she followed up her
freshman effort with a three-song EP titled "Odyssey" which is still winning praise from some of the industries acclaimed artists and promoters. "Odyssey" features some of Richmond's best musicians, including members of the Pat McGee Band: Brian Fechino, Chris Williams, and Chardy McEwin; Regan, Kyle Davis, producer Red Redling (New Potato Caboose), and recording engineer John Morand at Sound of Music Studios. Along with writing and recording her own music, Kristin has also co-written the music for the all original children's play "The Frog Prince Unraveled" with her long-time guitar teacher and producer Red Redling. The play debuted in early June 2003.
After spending a year studying Music Business at Radford University, Kristin is now attending Virginia Commonwealth University full-time working on her music degree in classical guitar performance. Her third CD release, titled "Know Me", was recorded with the help of Mary Beth de Pompa and Ashley Miller of CommonbonD.
Still under 21 years of age, Kristin is building a solid foundation in the music world, and shows great promise for the future.

"Luminous voice"
Melissa Ruggieri, Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Kristin's music is a lot like potato chips; you can never have just one."

Kristin’s a remarkable talent
This might not be the best way to start a review, but I really, really ... really wanted to hate this album. Stay with me here: First of all, the artist’s name is Kristin — just Kristin. As in Cher, or Madonna. Or Christo. Don’t these people have last names? Secondly, the third track of this five-song EP is called “Woman in the White House.” Great, thought I. Another misanthrope is born.

But aside from the non sequitur inherent in the title track’s chorus (“Let’s get a woman in the White House / It’ll only get better now don’t you know”) and the fuzzy logic throughout, it’s not a bad song. If Kristin’s amazing guitar talent gives no hint of her youth (she’s still shy of her 21st birthday), then we shouldn’t hold it against her that her lyrics do. As for the rest of Know Me, it’s a solid, if short, effort that showcases not just the aforementioned guitar, but also an absolutely gorgeous voice that also belies her age.

And her songwriting? For those of us on the other side of the political fence, that’s the worst part about this EP: I find myself singing “Woman in the White House” long after it’s over. She’s ... getting into my skull ... won’t leave ... must ... vote ... Democrat ...

So I don’t hate Know Me. Far from it, in fact — the worst part about the EP is that it’s far, far too short. Kristin’s a remarkable talent, and I would dearly love to see what she can do over the course of an album-length release.
