Kristeen Young truly is one to watch for in the coming years! Hammering away at her piano with such finely tuned chaos that would make a hitman blush and with lyrics sure to hypnotize. Baby Jeff's drumming is one of the most well matched performances for Ms. Young matching every click, screech, and piano slam with great precision. I had the chance to see them live in Reno (Opening for Morrissey), and she is one fantastic performer! Cheers Kristeen!

Heartfelt, unique, rockin'!

songs range from really aggressive to really beautiful and everything in between. have not heard a band like this one before. She plays her piano like nirvana plays their guitar, and the drums are absolutley brilliant. Vocals/melodies area all over the map from in-your-face rock to classical airy upper ranges: beautiful.

This band is going places!
