Kristin Erickson, currently based in Salt Lake City, decided early on she wanted to be a folk singer. Growing up in Minnesota, Kristin was raised on music, but it was the music of the ‘60's that really captured her attention and her heart.
Kristin left school in her mid-teens to pursue her music full-time. She performed for many years throughout the upper Midwest in coffeehouses, college concerts, bars, television, radio, recording studios, bowling alleys. Most of her performances were solo, but also performed with Minnesota country legends, The Sky Blue Water Boys. She also played solo opening sets for Tom Rush, Wendy Waldman, and Odetta.
After a long break Kristin has returned to singing, playing, and writing with greater passion than ever. She believes the greatest gift she can give her children is a life fully lived, and that is what she is aiming for.
Kristin released her first CD, "See What the Morning Brings" in September 2006.
