Kristy has come a long way from her formative years in Miami, recording herself on a Fisher-Price tape recorder. She studied Vocal Performance at the University of Michigan where she met her future husband and bassist, Mike Chiaburu. The two of them recorded an EP there and put together a number of bands. Kristy's experiences at school cemented her desire to move out to Los Angeles and pursue a career in singing and song writing.
Being on the road is important for any musician, and Kristy played at venues all over the United States as part of her 20-show tour in 2008. Locally, she’s played at famous venues including The Key Club, The Viper Room, and Hotel Café. Honing her skills both on the road and in the studio has paid off tremendously, as evidenced by her growing, loyal fan base and increased radio presence across the country.
