Kristen is a pop/folk singer-songwriter from Utah. Driven by authentic and powerful lyrics and melodies, Kristen’s music is emotional and thought-provoking. She continues to captivate audiences, not only with her ability to inspire her listeners and connect, but with her infectious sense of humor. Music is Kristen’s heart and soul; in a recent interview with KSL News Kristen said, “If at least one person is brought to tears during my performance then I have done my job. I want to touch hearts and move people the way music moves me”.
Growing up, music played a very important role in Kristen’s life. It became her passion, a source of peace and strength, and her solace. But still she found herself pursuing it only as a hobby. In 2013 a battle of the bands was announced in Salt Lake City. Kristen decided, on a whim, to enter the competition. She set out to find musicians who could form a band with her, and they began exploring music together. Shortly after the battle of the bands, the band split up. But the experience was life changing for Kristen. It opened her heart and mind to the possibilities of writing and performing her own music. During that time she wrote her first ever original song, “My Heart Passes Time” about her battle with anxiety. Unfortunately Kristen’s battle with mental illness continued, getting darker and more difficult as time went on. And with that, her dream to pursue music faded.
In 2017 things began to change. Through a series of events, Kristen began to heal for the first time. She met and fell in love with her now husband who supported and encouraged her to pursue music once again. She knew that was exactly what she needed to do. She needed to share her music and story with the world. After years of dreaming, Kristen began pursuing music seriously as a singer-songwriter. She has now released multiple singles and is in the midst of recording her first album.
