Simple, Silly, Soulful. A Detroit native raised a little bit of everywhere else, Kristen Merritt has played everything from intimate coffee, bar and lounge settings, to larger festival-style events, and has delighted crowds no matter the room capacity. As a solo artist, Kristen has found her sound in the neo-soul genre, and spices up her set with the occasional funk or soulful pop song, telling a new story with every original and cover she gives her unique flavor to. And speaking of flavors, her favorite oscillates between peach and pineapple.
(She finds her musical roots in groups such as Take Six, neo-soul greats such as Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, artists that defined their genres in their creativity, flair and storytelling, all of which Kristen takes great care in delivering in her live shows. Newer inspirations of hers include artists such as Daniel Caesar, H.E.R, and Moses Sumney.)
"Glossy. Wistful. Poignant. Daring. The new single “Ending” from singer-songwriter Kristen Merritt is a soulful reverie of reflection, presented with a gracious sound & incisive lyrics."
-Doug Nunnally, The Auricular
