Kristen’s earthy introspective folk/pop songs have the warmth of a golden sunset.  With intricate elements, her songs embrace life’s challenges and quiet moments of beauty. Gentle arrangements, haunting harmonies and insightful messages make her the perfect soundtrack to ease your melancholy.
With multiple ECMA and Music Nova Scotia award nominations since her return to music in 2020, she is making a name for herself in the East Coast music scene and beyond.  Her latest album ‘Every Season‘ (Sept 30, 2022) is her most confident, self-assured and emotionally compelling work to date. It was nominated for the 2023 ECMA ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Folk Recording of the Year’.
Kristen is a straight-from-the heart songwriter, capable of transforming her own experiences with life, love, and loss into songs with universal appeal. Moody, hypnotic and reminiscent of Sarah McLachlan, ‘Every Season’ is a lovingly crafted album full of surprises and moments of beauty. Produced by acclaimed songwriter-turned Producer Gabrielle Papillon, the album explores new territory with orchestral folk pop anthems and features artists such as Old Man Luedecke and Dan Ledwell.  ‘Every Season’ draws upon inspiration of the changing seasons and reminds us that with every change, every hardship there is a new outlook; a new beginning…a new season.
