About

Aloha, and welcome to my website!

My name is Kristi Krause and I'm a singer/songwriter from Southern California currently living on the North Shore of Oahu.

My music is inspired by my love for the beach culture, love, and the experiences I have had in my life.  When I am not playing music I'm usually  in the ocean or surfing with my friends. My goal with my music is to bring an upbeat, positive, and happy vibes!

My music and stylistic choices are influenced by artists such as Etta James, Eva Cassidy, Christina Aguilera, and more, while my lyrical storytelling was inspired by artists such as John Denver, Donavan Frankenreiter, Jack Johnson and Keith Urban. It seems to be a perfect formula to make others feel good and leave a smile on their face.

I was a contestant on American Idol Season 11 at the age of 18 which helped propel my professional singing career and opened to door for many opportunities to perform. I have performed at many music venues and am currently a singer/performer at Turtle Bay Resort.

Thank you for visiting my website! Take a look around, watch some of my music videos or listen to a few of my original songs. I really hope you like what my site has to offer!
