Description: Sultry New Music for a New Age
Biography: Although Miss Kristin has been performing for years
She has always been one to keep a cool low profile.
At times drenched by the driving rains of adversity
With each blinding flash, she comes out like a wind
blowing safely weathering the storm.

Some of her best writing is birthed through this adversity.
And the winds of love have covered this artist
like a balmy breeze that brings showers of blessing.

Miss Kristins vocals are like a sweet south air stream
soothing your soul through the places you rove.
Her lyrics profile and embrace
a vast account of life experience and hope,
waking the bliss through hidden truths and sometimes hurts
that remind us of who we are and where we are going.

Recently her AC single "THE SECRET OF YOUR HEART", hit #11 on Canada's Buzz radio charts...and continued charting for 19 weeks.
Her music is being featured all over the world
with singles from "TROUBLE CHILD",

Miss Kristin is a unique and appealingly different talent.
Her latest album, RIBBONS AND PEARLS
is a classic collection released June 2006.

Not far behind RIBBONS is a very special follow up
This music is a potent collection of timeless substance
that commands attention.

As with authority, Miss Kristin is a prolific writer with a large circle of sound.
She performs and records with many of Northern Californias finest seasoned musicians.

Press Release:
2 High 2 Die Music with Big Fuss Records is pleased to announce the release of Ribbons and Pearls,
the newest album by Miss Kristin.
Her fourth studio album and the first since last years
The Secret of Your Heart.

Miss Kristins latest offering is more spiritual in nature,
dealing with the endeavor to find liberation through God.

As always, Miss Kristins songs include a refreshing mix
of styles and moods.
The opening number, TO COME is an apt selection to begin the album,
introducing the singer as feeling confined by her current station in life,
yet conscious of a higher power that will guide her on:

The road is narrow and Im feeling compressed,
All I can see puts me to the test.
The prize is mine because I have it in mind
Its my walk Im going higher this time
Its my talk now Im further refined.

This energetic rocker with a blistering guitar track
fittingly supports the lyrics in conveying
the distress of battling against the limitations imposed
by a life devoid of God.

From here, Ribbons takes various twists and turns illustrating the singers battles to rise above personal desires and criticisms of her faith to realize a greater reality.
This is perhaps most clearly stated in RENEGADES,
an infectious tune with a lovely vocal mix:
Its not about me or my broken heart!
Re-organized by a higher power!
Im a renegade fighting for the truth.

Musically, the album features an excellent mix of arrangements and musical styles.
From the sweet, lilting melody and tasteful 12-string acoustic guitar in LOVE COVERS,
to the country-flavored piano and fiddle accompanied
Miss Kristins song-writing never gets bogged down in repetition.
And while musically varied, the message that runs throughout remains focused on the goal of personal salvation.

Ribbons and Pearls is a musical collage of the trials and tribulations of day-to-day life that ultimately becomes a message of hope and inspiration.

The final track uses PSALM 124 as its lyrics, indicating that she has prevailed and found her salvation through God:
If it had not been the Lord who was on our side,
they would have swallowed us alive.
Though the album carries a Christian message of personal salvation,
its message is allegorical and applies to all who feel something is missing in our increasingly materialistic-centered world.
