Biography

My personal influences are Melissa Etheridge, Tina Turner, Reba McEntyr, Janis Joplin, Faith Hill, Wille Nelson, Doobie Brothers, Rascal Flatts, Sarah McGlaughlin, Sheryl Crow, the Eagles,Tina Turner, and most Southern Rock.. I've been performing my whole life playing at every typical venue we musicians play at. I found myself in Texas back in the early 90"s working for a construction company, but was always out there performing and chasing my dream. Last year, 2007, I walked away from my job and started writing full time. I put together a band, then wrote and produced an album in 8 months. We are now playing around Houston and I just opened for Keith Anderson at the House of Blues in! I grew up listening to country music because of my parents, but had rock and roll, Pop and R&B playing on the Radio with my older siblings all the time. I love anything that has soul, anything that moves me. This music is a lifes journey... give me a shot.. I promise you won't be disappointed..I have my second album with several new songs on its way! Should be released this fall! thanks Krissi

Lyrics

Rainy Days

Written By: Krissi Minten

Rainy days like no other, keep me warm inside, and rainy days like my mother, make me wanna smile, I watch the rain drops paint the windwos, lightning crashes, breaks the sky, rainy days like no other, make me wanna smile..

I catch a bird to freedom, close my eyes clear my mind.. escape my own religions, sleep like a baby tonight..

Rainy days like no other, make me turn the page, and rainy days like my mother, make me forget my age, I watch the rain drops paint the windows, making way for celestial skies, rainy days like no other, make me wanna smile..

Oh..find the world of me, find the world of me, oh.. set my spirit free.. set my spirit free yeah ...

I catch a bird to freedom, close my eyes clear my mind.. escape my own religions, sleep like a baby tonight..

Insideout

Written By: Krissi Minten

Inside my head, inside my heart, inside this room real big where I'm real small.
Outside the walls, looking in, where do I begin, it's taken so very long, for me, to write my song...

Now I'm insideout, I can fee the rain, even though the sun is shining 'gainst my window pane.
Yes I'm insideout, I can hardly breath, I gave away the better part of me, so for a while I'm gonna be, inside...

Inside my soul, I've lost control, revealed my insecurities.....
so here I am, for you to see, I'm down on my knees..
it's taken so very long, for me to sing my song...

Now I'm insideout, I can fee the rain, even though the sun is shining 'gainst my window pane.
Yes I'm insideout, I can hardly breath, I gave away the better part of me, so for a while I'm gonna be, inside...

And I'm insideout, I can feel the rain, even though the sun is shining 'gainst my window pane..
it don't matter if you cry and feel the pain, it's like the sun and then the rain, and if you rise and then you fall, it doesn't matter at all...

inside my head, inside my heart, inside this room real big where...
I'm real small....

Janie

Written By: Krissi Minten

Janie sits by the window, watches the rain, tries to see the sun, but only sees the pain, Tommy was suposed to be here and hour ago, my mama says, is he comin', mama I don't know....

They've been together, a little while now, and in that time oh they fell in love some how.. and Janie wonders, is he gonna stay, and will he love me, oh tomorrow, like today..

Love me in the mornin, love me in the night, love me when I'm cold and tired, and over come with fright..will he love me when my brown hair is shorter and gray, will he love me, love me, love me, tomorrow.... oh like today.....

Winter, spring, summer and fall, they've got three babies now and Janie loves them all. Tommy's got a job, working 9 to 9, and they struggle to keep.. their love alive...

Tommy comes home and sits down by the bed, Janie's cryin' got the covers on her head.. she turns to Tommy and says, "at night I pray, that you'll love me.. oh tomorrow.. like today.."

Love me in the mornin, love me in the night, love me when I'm cold and tired, and over come with fright..will he love me when my brown hair is shorter and gray, will he love me, love me, love me, tomorrow.... oh like today.....

I don't know what I'm thinkin, I don't know what I doin, don't wanna let life get in the way...
I'm only tryin' to keep my sould from dyin'. I just want you with me every day...

Love me in the mornin, love me in the night, love me when I'm cold and tired, and over come with fright..will he love me when my brown hair is shorter and gray, will he love me, love me, love me, tomorrow.... oh like today.....

The American Dream

Written By: Krissi Minten

Some where in the corner of you mind there is a spark..
of the hopes and dreams you remember in your heart..
challanged by realities of days with lesser things..
we find ourselves believing, we can realize the dream..

the American Dream...
is a dream for all people.
a dream for tomorrow..
a dream for today..

the American Dream..
is a dream for the future..
the dream of our youth..
it's the dream of our lives..

In a sea of people, that can fill a stadium.
You dare to dream.. that you might be the one..
chosen to continue on the journey of your life..
you're going to make us proud, we stand and cheer you on!

the American Dream...
is a dream for all people.
a dream for tomorrow..
a dream for today..

the American Dream..
is a dream for the future..
the dream of our youth..
it's the dream of our lives..

Don't be afraid to make your way in a world that might bring you down, just keep on walking straight ahead keep your feet firmly on the groud..

the American Dream...
is a dream for all people.
a dream for tomorrow..
a dream for today..

the American Dream..
is a dream for the future..
the dream of our youth..
it's the dream of our lives..

The American Dream....

Before You Leave

Written By: Kristine Minten

My minds made up,I'm ready to go.. I've seen enough of this one man show.. a three ring circus..puppets on a string.

Yearning for better days, misunderstoond perceptions get in the way, say what you mean, mean what you say..

Before you leave, let me go, before you try to say hello. And if you stay, we'll never be, more than we are, because you don't see me..

I don't you name anymore, and I don't like you games anyomore.. why would I want to love a man, who doesn't love me like he can, oh...

I don't wanna stay, so go ahead and leave, go ahead and leave, go ahead and leave...

I don't you name anymore, and I don't like you games anyomore.. why would I want to love a man, who doesn't love me like he can, oh...

I don't wanna stay, so go ahead and leave, go ahead and leave, go ahead and leave...

Before you leave, let me go, before you try to say hello. And if you stay, we'll never be, more than we are, because you don't see me..

Just If I

Written By: Kristine(Krissi) Minten

You say everything is going to be ok, and everything is going to be alright, just if I...

and you say is going to come in time, everything is going to be just fine, just if I..

Just If I close my eyes and never stop to realize what my heart yearns to find Just If I..

Just If I take a stand that only others understand, oh then I win the prize Just If I...

Just If I..
Just If I..
Just If I..

I know we don't see eye to eye,
but this world you see is mine..
and if we you try I know you'll find.. that there's no need to JUSTIFY..

Just If I close my eyes and never stop to realize what my heart yearns to find Just If I..

Just If I take a stand that only others understand, oh then I win the prize Just If I...

Just If I..
Just If I..
Just If I..
JUSTIFY!!!!!
JUST IF I!
