From Melissa Etheridge to the Indigo Girls, from Brandi Carlile to all things Lilith Fair, St. Louis based acoustic trio kg lang is a striking tribute to the women’s folk rock genre. With soaring vocals by Kristen Goodman and intoxicating harmonies and instrumentation by Cindy Minnis and Laura McMurray, kg lang will evoke fond memories of your favorite music festivals and concerts from the last few decades.  Sprinkle in some original tunes and a few songs by their quasi-namesake kd lang, and you’ve got a gratifying mix sure to satisfy any acoustic music lover.  After playing together casually for several months and sensing the potential magic in this team, the trio decided to make it official in the Spring of 2017.  Their widely anticipated official debut at The Archive garnered rave reviews and instant fans.  Kristen, Cindy, and Laura plan to take kg lang on the road as they tour regionally and throughout the St. Louis metro area.  You can catch them on the first Wednesday of the month at Just John, and on the last Sunday of the month at Bar: PM.  kg lang was absolutely thrilled to play at the Halo Bar immediately following an incredible show from one of their musical idols- the Indigo Girls!  
Cheers to women in music!

Kristen Goodman is a versatile singer and entertainer specializing in acoustic, folk, jazz, musical theatre, cabaret, rock, blues, and soul.  She frequently plays solo shows at bars, cafés, and house concerts.  Her original music is influenced by artists like kd lang, Brandi Carlile, Bonnie Raitt, India Arie, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Tracy Chapman, Sara Bareilles, and so many others.  She enjoys playing cover songs from the past several decades, adapting each song to showcase her own style.

Kristen absolutely loves to sing jazz, showtunes, cabaret, and classics from the American songbook.  Her powerful vocals and her emotional delivery of the song's story have been known to make audiences laugh, cry, and even leap from their seats.

Kristen loves to sing many styles, but her all-time favorite is to sing with a killer band while burlesque and drag performers present their acts.  There's something truly electric about singing a specially curated song while a super talented entertainer strip-teases for a captivated crowd.  Seriously, if you haven't experienced this kind of show, you need to.  Trust me.  ;)
