Local Musician (and Artist)

Message from Kristin

I have played guitar and written my own songs and lyrics for several years, in the pop country vein and genre of Michelle Branch/Taylor Swift/Norah Jones. I also love to paint, and have focused over the years on portraits of people’s children or beloved pets, as well as rock-stars, celebrities etc. (See examples far below).  
  
Please refer to the following sneak preview tracks of my music, or search Kristin Wetzel on YouTube:

Of late, I have been moved by tragedy and sadness, yet a burst of great creativity, as my first love in the music world and life-long idol, Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries, passed away early in the year.  One of my newest songs (currently in production!) is a tribute to her, “Did You Hear? (Ode to Dolores)” with a haunting melody as well as nods to her Irish heritage, which I can’t wait to share with all of you.

I would like to humbly ask for your support in spreading the joy and love expressed in my music. As I am finally back in studio mastering current tracks, and recording/producing some new pieces for release on iTunes, I am working to grass-roots spread the word of my music and art to those who might be interested.
