Hello everybody! How are things? What have you been up too? I haven't heard from you guys in simply ages Are you still out there? lol!
Just wanted to let you know that I have a very exciting piece of news for you. Well actually you can watch it right here. It is a new music video. I got so many requests to record "Somewhere" from West Side Story that I thought it would be perfect for a video.
The loveliest, sweetest flower that bloomed in paradise, and the first that died, has rarely blossomed since on mortal soil. It is so frail, so delicate, a thing, it is gone if it but look upon itself; and she who ventures to esteem it hers proves by that single thought she has it not. Humility - Fry
Hello Kristyn, it's lovely to hear from you again!
Thanks for sharing that powerful performance of 'Somewhere'. Your voice is certainly getting stronger and richer, and I think you're really a mezzo-soprano now. I'm looking forward to hearing more songs.
Your avatar picture disappeared when you changed your website recently. Can you put a new link in your profile?

Hey all! Wow I really feel like I should post here more. Slap my hands for not visiting more often!
Thank you everybody I'm so glad you enjoyed the video and the music. It was a bunch of wicked awesome fun to record. It is the first video I have ever made.
The voice IS growing...really fast...great goodness!!! It is really hard to keep it under control but my voice teacher is amazing and keeps me in shape. The lower range has grown a lot and so has the higher range. On the lower end...an A below middle C is the lowest audiences ever hear because anything lower stays in the voice studio for now...not quite performance ready. On the higher end, the highest audiences hear is a high B. The soprano's high C is almost ready to perform. Anything above that...also stays in the voice studio...for private hearing only. Haha...Once I have mastered those notes and get them to sound pretty...I will share them with everybody. LOL. I have a three octave range now...but some of the notes are not really suitable for ears, delicate or otherwise.
It's an excellent video and an excellent song. Kris is definitely a soprano, though, she's just got a bit more power than would-be "voices of an angel," and that's good, there's room for all kinds of singers in this world.

Haha Hey guys. Can I just say one thing??? That water was reallllllyyyy cold...the one in my video...in fact... fan listing members...you will soon be able to view a lil' clip on just that subject...LOL...I won't tell you if I actually put my feet in....that is a surprise!
For those who feel cheated....HEY my feet are bare....inside my shoes. lol...but no...when warm weather comes...the shoes will come off! hahah. As the BAREFOOT soprano....you have to make little accommodations when you live in the state of Maine. lol.
Here's some exciting news (well for me at least !). Kristyn tweeted me this morning to say she and The Meadows will be playing at Milford on Sea Community Centre on July 21st. Tickets are £10 and unreserved and are available from Sue Whitlock on tel. 01590 644861.
New Milton is the nearest main line railway station and from there it's a 6 mile taxi journey (about 10 mins). The last train is at midnight so no need to rush away early ! (Forget about buses. They're non-existent in the evenings !)
Once the show is on the venue website I'll post a link. I'm looking forward to this. With Classical Reflection almost a 400 mile return journey away in Peterborough, at least I'll have one gig to go to this Summer. And let's face it guys, there's nothing else is there ? Well not unless you fly to Taiwan !
