About

HI!  MY NAME IS KRISTEN LYNN AND WE ARE MAKING A SECOND ALBUM WITH MY AMAZING GYPSY-JAZZ FOLK, AMERICANA BAND...THE FOXGLOVES!

That's right, we have 13 songs in the can!  Recorded & Mixed and almost ready to get out into the world.  And we are so excited for you to hear this newer, bigger, sweeter, sometimes darker sound.  This album is colored with a gypsy-jazz vibe to a vintage swing all the way back around to the sweet folksy sound of where it all began.

Where did it all begin?....

Well, 5 years ago I jumped on to my first kickstarter campaign, palms sweating and ready to tell the world I've been a closeted song-writer for all these years. I did, you listened, and because of all of the amazing kickstarter pledges I was able to raise the funds to make my very first album titled "LALA" (dedicated to my mother who passed away 13 yrs. ago).  I couldn't of done it without YOU and I'm so grateful!!

If you're just stumbling upon us...here is a link to "LaLa" on iTunes: 

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lala/id589657345

 Since then I've learned a lot of lessons.  One being...don't promise too many baked goods, since it's real easy to run out of dough. And two...my palms are still sweating. 

The last 5 years have been an amazing growing period for me as a musician, songwriter & woman.  I've been so lucky to find and collaborate with other incredible musicians on this new album.  The Foxgloves are Syd Everatt on Slide & Lead Guitar, Clayton Hamburg on Upright Bass, Johnny Sneed on Drums and Stephen Spies on Fiddle.

Here is our Studio Recording of "Bella Ciao" (which will be on the new album)

Recorded by Nico Essig and Filmed/Edited by Hawk Vaccaro

 We recorded at the amazing state of the art Ostin Music Studio at UCLA's Herb Alpert's School of Music .  This was an incredible opportunity for us!  Our sound engineer, Nico Essig, worked with some of the best in the business including Amy Winehouse, Paul McCartney & Daft Punk to name a few.  Needless to say we were in amazing hands.

INVESTMENT & NEED

We are so grateful to UCLA for helping us and we've invested all of our personal savings and so much time to get this far. We would love to have your help to cross the finish line. Of course there are a lot of challenges in producing your own work, but the reward is even greater.  Being able to create music that may touch your heart, brings joy and inspiration to each one of us. We have big plans for this next record!  We hope to tour extensively across the US and beyond...(Is that Italy we hear calling?)...and reach as many of you as we can!  So we can personally give you each 10,000 hugs!

  • MASTERING
  • CD REPRODUCTIONS
  • DISTRIBUTION
  • ARTWORK & PHOTOGRAPHY
  • GRAPHIC DESIGN
  • LICENSING 
  • PR MARKETING (We are working with an amazing PR Company, "Mugys PR" and they will be focusing on getting this album out on a much bigger scale. To radio stations, blogs, magazines...etc.) 
  • A KILLER MUSIC VIDEO
  • AND A CD RELEASE PARTY!!!!  (Please come!)

The budgeted goal ensures that we will have the means to finish producing a high quality, professional album & music video that you and I will both be proud of!!!

LISTEN

Special Thanks to the talented Hawk Vaccaro for the Studio & Live Footage and beautiful video of Bella Ciao. And thanks to Andre Misyutin for the Kickstarter Video Interview & fantastic video Edit.

-------**NOTE** We MUST raise the amount listed, or we will NOT receive any of the funds!

Risks and challenges

We have set our goal at the bare minimum that we need to finish this baby and get it out there. There's always a chance of a delay, but none of us want that, and we are working very hard to stay on schedule. We'll keep everyone updated throughout the process.

The biggest risk we're taking is not meeting the goal. If that goal isn't met, none of the pledges will be collected and none of the rewards will be distributed... *and sweaty palms..*...So wanna help us meet that goal?? Oh please oh please.

We've been playing lots of live shows through out Southern CA and seeing the audiences excitement to this new music, we can't wait to get it out into the world!!

SO, YOU IN??

LET'S MAKE A KILLER ALBUM & MUSIC VIDEO TOGETHER!!

WE ARE SO GRATEFUL!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!
