A BIT ABOUT:
Plucked from the thick-brown-rumblin?n?rollin?-Tina Turner-Chuck Berry-Muddy Waters of the Mississippi River?.arrives ROCK singer/songwriter, KRISTEEN YOUNG.
This native St. Louisan re-introduces ADVENTUROUS rock as only a 1/2 Apache/bible-fed/orphaned child/now non-teen/mid-westerner can. It?s from a far-off distant planet called Missouri and it?s got scars. Kristeen leads her band, KRISTEEN YOUNG & the Low Boys, with a driven, blown-out, guitar-riff piano sound that is equal parts Jerry Lee Lewis/Jimmy Page/Jello Biafra in attitude.
She combines this with a Thomas Dolby meets DMX meets Bowie flavour, then, throws it into a 3 minute/verse-chorus American blender for good measure. This is definitely music from a person sitting in the middle of a continent (no boundaries).
Vocally, she slides just as effortlessly through styles, wielding a 4 octave range?.And, of course, her clothes could only be designed by?her?all 60?s structure gone sliding sideways into that American artery.
Rock and Roll as an ADVENTURE.
Rock and Roll as a BLOODSPORT.
Isn?t it time?
To see it is to believe it.
Be sure to drop bye as many fellow Bnetters will be in attendance as well as the great Tony Visconti, who is rumored to be having a meet and greet after the show.Ã‚Â
