Texas-bred musical powerhouse, KRISTYN HARRIS, is noted for her shimmering vocals, solid swing rhythm guitar style, unique songwriting, award winning yodel, and captivating stage presence. At 21 years, she is a 2-time recipient of the Western Music Association Female Performer of the Year, (2014, 2015) and is the youngest in history to receive this award. She was also named 2013 Academy of Western Artists Female Vocalist of the Year. Her singing has been praised as "timeless" with
"the warmth and power of Texas sunshine".
Kristyn, though not raised in a musical household, began playing and singing at age 14 when she felt strongly inspired to pick up a guitar - and it has rarely left her hands since. Finding an instant (and enduring) passion, she launched into a headlong pursuit of music, especially attracted to the swing chordsmanship, alluring melodies, ranching themes and vintage arrangements that cornerstone western swing and cowboy music (later, throwing in bits of country, 1940s big band, gypsy jazz, and traditional folk song influences to her music, and building a gospel repertoire). Somewhere along the way it became her career path.
