I am and have been a singer-songwriter since I was 13 years old when my Dad handed over his beloved 6 string guitar and taught me a couple chords. I had always loved to sing and after a brief one sided love affair with the violin, I found the guitar much more suited to my needs. I could play and sing at the same time and it was only a matter of time before I was writing the depths of my 13 year old soul down to my 3 chords and belting it out for the whole world to hear. And I haven’t stopped since.
I have explored the world, responded to my hardships, praised my beautiful moments, all through music for over half of my life now. Quite honestly I don’t know how else to do it. As I grew older I found that I am a born traveler, and luckily for me, traveling and music go together like cinnamon and nutmeg. Like apples and pie.
I have lived in Maine, southern CA, northern CA, Boston, DC, Toronto, and Hawaii. I crossed the country at least 9 times in my little yellow Ford Focus, and plenty more by plane, train, and bus. Along the way I stopped to share my songs at café’s, bars, farmers markets, restaurants and festivals.
In 2007 I bought a laptop, equipped myself with pro tools and set off to record my first album, “For Those Who Still Believe In Unicorns”. I kept the instrumentation very simple, mostly just guitar and voice partly for the sake of convenience and partly because I wanted it to reflect my live sound, since most of my cds were sold at shows on the road.
For my second album, "Gypsy Girl", which was released in 2009 I decided to work with a couple of studios, and brought in some studio musicians on several of the tracks.
My third album "Rugged Heart" was just released in January 2014 and is available for purchase here, http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kristinlagasse
