Kris Pride may not be very well known, but she certainly stands out. She started at the age of 18 with her band and has been heavily influenced by Tracy Chapman and other female artists. Pride is a tenacious woman with a mature, smooth voice; her songs are all original and each one has a deep meaning. The soothing melody is easy to remember.
Though she may have a long road ahead to become a household name, she has more than enough heart to get there. We hope you will enjoy the following video - an Artist Spotlight interview featuring Kris Pride's work:
Next up is Sara Niemietz. Sara is a professional with an impressive repertoire. Over the years, she has made several guest appearances on popular TV shows such as First Monday and Gilmore Girls, as well as the role of Polly in Akeelah and the Bee. More impressive was her work in the music from the horror flick The Exorcism of Emily Rose:
"In 2005, noted film composer Christopher Young hired her as the lead voice in his score for, The Exorcism Of Emily Rose. After completing the music, Young remarked, “Without Sara’s voice, there would be no score – I have never in my life seen someone at her age so thoroughly professional.” She continued her work with Young in 2008 for the film The Uninvited, in which her vocals were featured."
