Kristen Lynn is a Los Angeles based, jazz-folk singer-songwriter and Actor from Philadelphia. She has been playing music ever since she can remember. Growing up with two piano's and raised by musical parents, James Herbert (Conductor/Founder of the Pennsy Pops) and Laura Barletta, (Songwriter) music is just in Kristen's blood. She grew up listening to an array of Billy Holiday, Janis Joplin, Louis Armstrong, Hank Williams & Etta James just to name a few. After losing her mother to breast cancer, she became truly inspired to give the gift of music and pursue a dream her mother never got the chance to. She released her debut album, "LaLa" in Dec. 2012. and has dedicated it to her Mother, Laura.."Lala".
She met violinist/singer in the band, Stephen Spies, while in character at an improv comedy event in Los Angeles and asked if he was interested in joining her "twin sister's" band. Stephen said yes (after realizing that Kristen meant herself by her "twin sister") and since then Mark Gutierrez on Bass, Kyle Dombroski on Drums, and Elliott Klein on electric guitar have all joined the band creating Kristen Lynn & The Foxgloves. While Stephen was a music student at UCLA, the band had "unlimited" access to the music studio there funded by Mo Ostin and Herb Alpert. Kristen Lynn and the Foxgloves recorded their newest album, "Lonely Girl", in that studio with audio engineer, Nico Essig, who has worked with Paul McCartney, Madonna and Daft Punk. With the help of their fans, through Kickstarter, they raised $10,000 to finish the album, and released in February 2018.
Kristen Lynn and the Foxgloves are a head-turning, foot-tapping, ground-breaking twist on progressive blues-folk-Americana style with a modern vintage sound. With fun instrumentation such as; Banjolele, Fiddle, Upright Bass, Electric Guitar and Drums, you can catch them playing Live throughout Los Angeles.
