Kristen Goodman & her Big Band

They performed 12 original songs which will comprise the forthcoming live album to be released later in 2020.
Raised on jazz, musical theatre, yacht rock, and R&B, Kristen's original music is influenced by a wide variety of genres and by artists like Joni Mitchell, kd lang, Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan, Sadé, Carole King, Roberta Flack, Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, and many others.
