“Kansas Songwriter Kristie Stremel Honors Orlando Victims With Music”

“Kansas woman writes, records beautiful song for Orlando victims”

"Our music world is populated with lots of women who rock, in every sense of that word — women doing things people used to think women shouldn’t do, whether they’re fronting a band as a singer or lead guitarist, writing songs, producing and promoting concerts or showcasing music from a commercial-radio pulpit. Here are a dozen who play various roles in the Kansas City music scene, adding to its fire and luster, feeding its heart and soul."

"Kristie Stremel's been a local music stalwart since her time in Frogpond"

"Aggressive and provocative, the singer/guitarist leans into her material with the passion of a true believer."

"take-no-prisoners attack that can’t help remind you of Chrissie Hynde and early Tom Petty."

"Like the rest of us, Stremel's been told that things are hopeless.Yet, she's managed to grab some shards and forge this determined, tuneful, rocking collection. It's only a question of time before the word gets out."
