KRISTIN LEE has a style and repertoire that reflect her love of the American Standards from the 20s through the 60s, & the singers of the Big Band era. Latin music, ‘gypsy jazz’ and International Hits add to her versatility.


Kristin Lee’s parents listened to their ‘pop music’ from the 40s & 50s—Nat King Cole, Julie London, Tijuana Brass, etc…which gave her a taste for this older style of American music. Kristin fell in love with jazz by listening to KJAZZ, and passionate about music & singing, she trained with the great jazz singer, Julie Kelly. While touring Europe for three summers, she also recorded in France, with Philipe Gallet, Christian Matarazzi & Pierre Le Van. There she deepened her interest in vintage European music and ‘gypsy jazz.’ Much of her repertoire comes from ‘The Great American Songbook’ with music that was written by musical-history greats, such as Cole Porter, Peggy Lee & Antonio Jobim. She sings with a group of any size, from a duet, to adding other musicians: bass, drums, brass, depending upon your event.

beautiful love
you're all a mystery
beautiful love
what have you done to me?
i was contented til you came along,
thrilling my soul with your song.

beautiful love,
i've roamed your paradise...
searching for love
my dream to realize.
reaching for heaven,
ascending with you,
beautiful love,
will my dream come true?

tall & brown & young & guapo
the man from east l.a. goes cruisin'

when he walks he's like a quebradita that dips & grinds & moves so sexy, that when he passes each mamacita says 'aye-papie'...
