Artist Information
Kristen Leigh is a folk-rock singer/songwriter from North Carolina's piedmont region. She has been performing music for over 9 years, but only recently began her career as a solo artist. Since then, she has independently recorded two albums: a debut collection of folk favorites and originals called "Last Call", and an autobiographical musical sketch of her recent yearlong journey to the west coast and back again, which she has affectionately dubbed "Caution to the Wind." Kristen's musical style is highly eclectic pulling elements from a wide-ranging musical background in the traditional genres of folk, alternative, bluegrass, indie rock, the blues, and rock n roll.
