Ellen, DC, NYC, new CD, and The Voice!!

Ok, so I have crazy stuff going on right now, and all of it is pretty amazing. I'm just going to get right down to the countdown if that's ok with you! #5 - My Ellen video has gotten over 1,300 views in less than a week! Thank you so much for spreading it around and sharing it with friends. If you've thought of someone else to share it with - the video is at the bottom of the e-mail. Please keep passing it along!

#4 - I'm going to be on the radio on Thursday! I'll be playing and having my music featured on a radio show called, Connecticut Rocks. I come on around 4 p.m. EST, and for those of you out of the area - you can listen by visiting: www.wpkn.org. For those of you who are local, please tune in to 89.5 FM.

#3 - I'm heading off to two great shows this weekend! I'll be playing at The Corner Store in Washington DC on Friday night (8 p.m.) with two great singer/songwriters (Rene Moffatt and Kevin Skolnik), and I'll be playing at The Sidewalk Cafe in NYC for their Blackout Series on Sunday night at 8:30 p.m.!

#2 - I'm getting back into the studio this weekend! (I told you things were crazy…) I'm working with one of my favorite singer/songwriter/rockers, Chris Cubeta, and am going to have a new EP ready for my summer tour.

#1 - I hope you're ready for the big reveal! I'm auditioning for The Voice this weekend. Some of you may have heard of the show - it's a singing show, similar I guess, to American Idol, but there's no meanness!!  The problem is, I have no idea what to sing…I have a few choices and sang through three options in this video. Will you let me know which one you'd vote for?  You can comment here, or send me an e-mail: kristen@kristengraves.com.  Thank you!



Whew…I'm exhausted from typing all of that. As always, thanks for everything. Your support means so much to me, and I hope that you know how grateful I am.

I hope that this e-mail finds you enjoying a productive and beautiful day, and I'll talk to you soon!

Take care, Kristen

ps...if you want to see it again - here's the Ellen video!
