KRISTEENYOUNG Short Info

Kristeen Young uses a wide range of expression and piano in a bombastic, dissonant, distorted, angular style. She writes songs that make you feel something and straddle the boundaries of genre.

She has collaborated with some of the finest musicians of our day, including David Bowie, Patrick Stump, Brian Molko and Dave Grohl, and with recent tours opening for Morrissey she has performed at some of the greatest venues in the world.

Her most recent album, The Knife Shift (self-released May 13, 2014) was co-produced with Tony Visconti and featured Dave Grohl on drums and guitar.

"I love this record. It's unlike anything I've done before. Piano, drums, bass, and guitar. That's it. It's bare, but very deep. Raw, but melodically complex. I love Kristeen. So much. I've never met anyone like her. Neither have you." - Dave Grohl

"Everything about this singer is new. The solid fixity of her presentation is as striking as having a safe drop on your head from a tenth-floor window. She belongs to no other time or fad. Even her makeup is a mystery. The voice sails and then anchors at perfect pitch – ready to swallow up children and out-pace migrating herds." - Morrissey
