Kris Acklen / Bio

Kris Acklen is a songwriting powerhouse with a list of hits waiting to be discovered. Kris writes songs for Country, Pop, Folk, and RnB, often fusing these genres into songs that connect with the masses. Hailing from Memphis, TN, this 29 year old multi-instrumentalist has spent decades soaking in the rich culture and history his Memphis roots have to offer. Kris is very interactive with his fans and you can find him on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and most importantly www.KrisAcklen.com. Performing live since 2009, Kris' smooth yet powerful voice gives him the versatility to deliver for whichever genre he's writing. Kris can sing to you in his sweet falsetto during his pop song "Easy to Love" or belt out the pain of getting over addiction in his ballad, "12 Steps." After releasing the more indie/pop side of his songwriting at the end of 2011 with "The Trainsets EP," Kris is scheduled to show off his smoother RnB songs at the end of 2015 with an EP entitled "Fall'n." Kris is currently playing showcases and festivals with his band while he preps to take them on the road, taking the next step towards becoming a regional act.
