Kristen and The Move n Play Musicians shined at The Abbot Kinney Festival this year! With over 100,000 people passing through the streets filled with gourmet food trucks and local artisans, Cook fulfilled a dream. New recordings are coming soon, and she is excited for more performance opportunities ahead. As her company, and band of musicians continue to grow Kristen is currently booking family-friendly festivals and events throughout the West Coast and beyond, for the Spring and Summer of 2013.
"She has the bubbly nuances of Jack Johnson, the aloofness and unpredictability of Regina Spektor, the enthusiasm for life of Bob Marley, and the sense of camaraderie of all those country and folk singers you love. Wrap yourself in a comfy blanket—that's the music of Kristen Cook. " -- cm, disarray magazine.
