See What the Morning Brings, released late 2006



Kristin Erickson, currently based in Salt Lake City, decided she wanted to be a folksinger when she was eight years old. Growing up in Minnesota, Kristin was raised on music: church choir, Broadway show tunes, classical and country, and was blessed with piano lessons and school band with clarinet and oboe. 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 music full-time. She performed for many years, based in Minneapolis, throughout the upper midwest in coffeehouses, college concerts, bars, television, recording studios, bowling alleys, wherever she was hired to play. Most of her performances were solo, just voice and guitar, although she did put in a year with Minnesota country legends, The Sky Blue Water Boys. High points from those early days include opening sets for Tom Rush, Odetta and Wendy Waldman.

Then came a twenty year break to try to be a "grown-up." Kristin has returned to singing, playing and writing with a greater passion than ever. Her performances these days consist primarily of her original songs, but also include songs of talented friends and a few choice covers.

Of her recent CD, released late in 2006, one reviewer writes... "Her delivery features laid back guitar work and a soprano vocal that is achingly beautiful. The songs are sung with fearlessness, even peacefulness. This album is just too Beautiful (track 13) to remain a secret for long."

Recent and upcoming performances include THe Sun & Moon (SLC), Intermountain Acoustic Music Assoc. Local Concerts, Cliff Lodge at Snowbird (SLC), Torrey Music Festival, EP Atelier Coffeehouse (Mpls.), Riverside Cafe (Mpls.)
