Kristen Rae Bowden – Within singer-songwriter Kristen Rae Bowden is the spirit of the mountains and a wild streak of wanderlust. Her 11-song debut, Language And Mirrors, snapshots nostalgic moments of rugged rural life and bracing jolts of adventure. It’s an electrifying yin yang collection of roots rock and stately orchestral rock that lyrically reveals the singer-songwriter’s fiery blend of sensitivity and strength. Her artistry brims with clever metaphorical turns of phrases, raw emotionality, and imaginative musical arrangements. Kristen counts as inspiration such diverse artists as Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Primus, Radiohead, Joni Mitchell, John Prine, and legendary musical theater composer Stephen Sondheim. In performance she exudes white-knuckle passion, pounding the sh#& out of her piano while sharing her majestic musicality.
