Kirsten Proffit's "Lucky Girl" received radio play in much of the US and all over internet radio as well as tv and film. It was picked up in movie theaters throughout the country and in Wyndam hotels worldwide.
Some further uses of Kirsten's talents: she wrote and performed 3 songs in Martin Short's film Jiminy Glick in LaLaWood, and "Something I Can't Be" was in TV's Dawson's Creek. Her songs have also appeared in the DVD's for Party of Five, Dawson's Creek and Felicity, as well as three songs in the full-length documentary Normal People Scare Me. Other song placements include The Jay Leno Show, Friday Night Lights, Melrose Place 2009, All My Children, Various shows on The Style Network, TLC, The Outdoor Channel and others. Kirsten won "Best Female Artist" and was nominated for "Best Female Acoustic Live Performer" at the 2006 OC Music Awards.
Her soon to be released follow up record is a departure from the more pop effort before it. The new record is a fusion of roots instruments over savvy pop songwriting and guitars.
The song "California" is the realization that you can't go back to love affairs of the past.
"Whatever That Means"(co write with Bruce Witkin) is a sassy, awakening-to-a-new-life anthem.
"The Sweetest Kiss" is a hauntingly simple but lovely look at that moment when you "just know"
These, with the other songs on the record are a unique, quirky but meaningful, ear friendly dose songwriting.
