Biography

Blending old school soul, classical compositional chops, and 21st century technology, Kirsten Price extends the British tradition of re-interpreting American soul music in a fresh, innovative way. With the release of her debut album, Guts & Garbage, Kirsten hits the road in 2008. Prior to its’ release, her metaphoric and irresistibly catchy signature song, “Magic Tree,” was featured as the lead track on the L Tunes: Music From And Inspired By THE L WORD compilation album, while a video for "Magic Tree" aired exclusively on Showtime to promote season 4 of "The L Word." Magic Tree has also appeared in the hit television series, CSI, and was most recently heard in the premier of the new ABC series, Cashmere Mafia.

In early 2007, Kirsten found a kindred spirit in producer Fred Sargolini (MING+FS, Kool Keith, Susan Vega, "Sex & the City," "CSI: NY," “Entourage”), and laid down the songs -- including "Magic Tree" -- that form the core of Guts & Garbage. Working with Raphael Saadiq (D'Angelo, Joss Stone, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, The Roots, Snoop Dogg) and Danny Saber (Madonna, Seal, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones), Kirsten rounded out the remainder of the album. So prepare yourselves. With a voice that pulls you in, and an attitude that threatens to spit you out, you’ll be glad you came along for the ride.
