Award winning singer/songwriter, Kristin Connell, sings with ease, clarity and a voice so untainted and pure it draws the listener back for more. Connell’s debut album Second Chances shows her range of influences, from contemporary pop/folk to Americana; teaming with local producer Jonathan Kingham they created an album that captures exactly that. From the folk/pop feel of Hello California to the Americana sound of Did My Time, this album appeals to many different audiences, while not straying too far. “Second Chances is a polished folk/pop album beautifully played and sung. It’s very much like albums by Bruce Hornsby, modern and radio friendly but deeply rooted in American Traditions”… ~ The Victory Review.
An established performer in the Seattle area, Connell’s sincere personality shows on stage winning the hearts of those who hear her. Connell took home 1st Place in the 2006 Gig Harbor Folk Festival Songwriting Contest for performance and songwriting and has shared the stage with Grand Ole Opry Member Hal Ketchum and with award winning singer/songwriter Cliff Eberhardt. Being comfortable and real, audiences not only enjoy hearing great music but also leave feeling like they have spent the evening with a close friend.
Whether playing the college circuit, theatres, festivals, wineries or coffeehouse settings, Connell performs pure folk/pop goodness delivered with a sincerity that could make a convict believe.
