So much NEWS!!!!

      I am SO far behind on this website these days…thought I would focus on painting, and practising, writing…just bury myself in work and see what would happen and what has happened? Fasten your seatbelts!!! As my last post showed, I launched my new wearable art line, KNASH Designs a while back. I’ve been having so much fun designing leggings, cushion covers, all kinds of things that get my art out there for people that might not be able to make it to art shows and such…now you can order KNASH Designs from The Art of Where and Shopify and the list is growing! I also published my first book/short story, called “The Anniversary”, and it is available on Createspace and Amazon, of …

Kind words about “A Feather and a Scale”

I love it when people take the time to send me their thoughts after listening to my music! Here are a few of them: “Hi Kirsten, enjoyed listening to your CD all day today. Love all the tracks, but love love love “where does the time go”…. Looking forward to your concert/show. I’ll get a group of us to go.” NaSim “”Feather and a Scale” was more insightful guidance for me in a spiritual (def: that which you are made of) way, at least as much as many “practical spirituality” Sunday morning church visits. I would like to find a choir again, that sang that kind of material. I thought Amos Mosely might, but no. The VOC Soul Gospel Choir, with Chico Tohomaso, (from Lionel …

A Review from Bruce Allen

A Review from Bruce Allen:)))) A few weeks ago I sent my new CD, “A Feather and a Scale” to a few people for feedback…I have received only positive and very kind words in response from those who have listened. Of course it’s not easy as an unsigned artist to get people to listen, (or review) for so many reasons…but once they do they, so far, have been really awesome with their responses, and I will be sharing some of those responses over the next months. But for now, I’d like to start at the very top of my list, a review I’ll be smiling about for years, even better than the last one he blessed me with for “The View From Here”!! Some kind …

Thank you CHLY 101.7 FM !!!!!

I’d like to shout out a big “Thank you!” to CHLY 101.7 FM for all their support the last few years for my music. Both hosts, Pam Edgar and Brian Hazelbower have been playing my new CD, “A Feather and a Scale” on their shows, ‘Living for the Health of It’, ‘Songwriter’s Circle’ and ‘Harbour City Beat’, and I am so grateful! I got to listen to Pam on “Living for the Health of It”, and I thought she was only going to play a couple of bits of my songs, but I think she played all but two off my new Cd! And then Brian played a couple more that night on “Harbour City Beat”…made me feel great, and knowing they are still playing my …

Alice in Modernland-a Journey in Progress

When I was 16 years old I first thought about the idea of making my favourite story, Alice in Wonderland, into a gritty, dark exploration of the human spirit, told through music. It took another 16 years for me to write the first draft, which I recorded in a run-down garden shed with the help of friends John Ellis on guitar/ final mixing and Norm Fisher on bass. Everything else on the demos I played or sang, dub after dub of harmonies, pumping a foot pedal to punch in, all in different voices to try to make it sound like there were diverse characters on the recording. I learned how to program drums, keyboards , run my adat/atari studio and recorded the 26 songs for …

“You Play Like a Man!”

I don’t remember when I first became conscious of being a “Tom girl”. When I reflect up on the expression, it strikes me as such a ubiquitous part of the lexicon of my childhood; it was understood that I didn’t quite fit in with the other girls, that there was something I was that made them a little uncomfortable. While another girl would scream at the sight of a spider, I would be fascinated, could spend ages watching it build it’s web, marveling at it’s industry. The same went with all insects, snakes and ground crawlers in general…except rats and dead birds; I still can’t handle living rats and dead birds. When it came to throwing a ball, I was told I didn’t throw “like …

Bliss and the Working Artist

The first words that passed through my mind when asked how my life as an artist-musician had given me bliss were, “the Agony and the Ecstasy”. I thought about it for a few days, and then came to the conclusion that bliss was the Holy Grail of creativity. Of course, there are varying degrees, different shades of bliss; the feeling that comes with taking on a difficult piece, slowly dissecting and rebuilding it until you are it’s master, commanding it to your soul, to your fingers or whatever your canvas…that’s definitely a kind of bliss, that fluidity between you and your art. There’s the bliss that comes from pure artistic spontaneity, prefaced by the ability, after years of hard work and practice, to deftly steer …
