"Dissonant, operatic and intense, Kristeen’s fascinating compositions recall the enchantment of Kate Bush, Prince and Kathleen Hannah all at once, often resembling an ever-evolving art piece as much as a musician”
- Circuit Sweet

"She uses piano, synths, a punk-rock rhythm section and her melodramatic vocals to conjure moods ranging from frantic to defiant to tender, often turning on a dime several times in a single song. Live, she's a theatrical presence, pummeling her keyboard and hitting high notes that her unhinged music and muscular bass/drums backing duo seems to be physically forcing out of her.” also…."if you haven't gotten your ass down there yet to see her, you really should, because she's amazing."
- L.A. Weekly

Originally from St. Louis, MO., Kristeen Young are a New York City based keys, bass, and drums (zeppelin-heavy, avant garde, piano-bash rock) trio. Kristeen Young is also the front person, keyboard player and songwriter for the band, Sylvia Black plays bass, and Jefferson (Baby Jef) Wayne White is the drummer. Their sound has been described as prunk (prog/punk) but mixing in other genres at times, too, with Young singing operatically at times. They have toured extensively as support band for Morrissey, played (for their last album release) on the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson, and recorded a (Kristeen Young written) duet with David Bowie. Kristeen Young have a (Tony Visconti co-produced) new album coming out in 2017 called Live at the Witch’s Tit on which Nick Zinner, of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, plays guitar on a few songs. Other guest guitarists include Vernon Reid (Living Colour) Sarah Register (Talk Normal), and John LaMacchia (Candiria).

Langen Neubacher:

While Langen performs solo from time to time, she currently does not have any official recordings of her own. However, this video will give you an idea of what she sounds like. Below is the latest by Defeated County. It is pretty charming and the video was put together by Matt Basler.

Syna So Pro:

She was recently featured on the blog, so this video features her singing voice in a poignant and spirited message on the power of using one's voice. Below is her latest effort also.
