“If the Halloween town of Tim Burton’s ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ had a resident keyboardist, it would be Kristen Lawrence.” – Keyboard Magazine
Kristen writes Halloween music – Halloween Carols™, specifically. She is a classically trained organist who writes with a modern edge, influenced by centuries of musicians from J.S. Bach to Danny Elfman.
Kristen's new album, "Zombie Ambience - from the Halloween Carols," will be released one digital single at a time, like a “Hans und Gretel breadcrumb trail” leading up to her witchy kitchen of autumnal aural delights.
Her recent album -- "Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Raven'" -- features her setting of all 18 verses of this famous poem, a tantalizing composition that will appeal to Poe lovers and Halloween freaks of all ages.
A Halloween aficionado, Kristen studied the holiday’s history and decided that Halloween deserves its own original carols. To date, she has over 60 Halloween Carols™ written and continually adds to her collection. Each carol is waiting its turn to be recorded and released.
Kristen grew up in the temperate trick-or-treating weather of Orange County, California and calls Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion her second home. She writes music with her black cat “Molly Macabre the Halloween Cat” at her side. Molly is a featured “vocalist” in the song, “Cats In The Catacombs,” from Kristen’s CD, “A Broom With A View.”
