Bio

Christian Krieg, a singer/songwriter from Des Moines, Iowa is a musician who creates beautifully crafted lyrics and tunes that provoke simultaneous images of something heard long ago and something that could be heard tomorrow. Christian's music, unlike many bands of today, stand on its own. With his smoky vocals and acoustic pianos humming along in the background, his music provokes thought and teaches the listener a thing or two.

Krieg has been writing feverishly for about 4 years, his 2nd Album of 2007: "A Commoner's Guide to Warfare" is a pensive, lyrical & harmonious excursion into the very concept of war & all of the nasty ramifications that can occur from armed conflict. Krieg not only writes about the taxing emotions & madness of current American war in Iraq, but also delves into the American Civil War, World War II, the Spanish Civil War and the ongoing battles that are waged within the human psyche.

Christian Krieg's 1st album of 2007, "Wayward Pilgrims" has been called by Scenezine "a bold, moving collection of homegrown music that simultaneously calls to mind Elliot Smith, The Beatles & early Paul Simon....(Krieg) is a Des Moines native who deserves some attention, with his beautiful melodies and haunting lyrics..." The album takes on the role of a journey, starting with the dark rumbling of "The Road" and ending up in the "City of God". Along the way the listener experiences many trials and joys of any life journey, such as grief, fellow travelers, love, heartache, parenthood and redemption.

Krieg's currently working on his 3rd collection of 2007 "Songs from the Low Road: Volumes I & II" Volume I completed in August and was favorably reviewed by Jeff Morlan of DM Datebook. The project returns to the subject matter of an ongoing journey, beset with many obstacles that interact with daily life - love, ego, fear, judgment and hope. Volume II is slated to be finished by the end of 2007.
