Kristin Connell's CD RELEASE PARTY

Get down with Dance Of Love

In many ways Kristin Connell is a walking contradiction. She has this whole sexy yet wholesome girl-next-door thing going on. She also manages to sing with great confidence while at the same time sounding sweet and soothing. She’s beautiful but has a country girl charm that makes her seem approachable and friendly. There’s a lot more to this girl then meets the eye. Please preview the her new CD “Dance of Love” and consider recommending it to your friends!

“Local Songbird Kristin Connell’s debut album features road tested songs such as Hello California and many love (and love gone wrong) songs such as the affecting Did My Time...” - The Tacoma News Tribune

“Second Chances is a polished folk/pop album, beautifully played and sung. It’s very much like albums by Bruce Hornsby, modern and radio friendly but deeply rooted in American traditions” - The Victory Review

“You get a peaceful, easy feeling - to quote The Eagles - from listening to Connell’s music… Connell’s debut album Second Chances is the work of an artist that is in close touch with her emotions, which is always the best way to make quality art” -

“Connell’s songs are well written, straightforward AAA contemporary style” - Collected Sounds

“The new album titled Dance of Love features sweet soft-spoken jewelesque vocals and roots influenced folk-pop music. Standouts on the new album include the song “Choo Choo” that sports a little attitude and the feminine version of an Elvis Presley swagger and the title track “Dance of Love” that brings to mind open fields and small town charm.” – Angela Jossy, freelance music journalist
