Kristin Lee sings with a style and repertoire that reveals her love of the American Jazz Standards from the 1920s through the 1950s; some jazz blues, Latin Jazz, Gypsy Jazz and traditional pop add to her versatility. Kristin fell in love with jazz by listening to KJAZZ, and she trained with the great, jazz singer, Julie Kelly. European tours began in 2005, with her first CD recorded in 2006 in France with Philippe Gallet, Christian Matarazzi & Pierre Le Van. There she became more interested in vintage European music and Gypsy Jazz. Kristin’s style reflects her favorite singers of the Big Band era: Julie London, Doris Day, Peggy Lee and Nat King Cole. Much of her repertoire comes from ‘The Great American Songbook’, written by such musical history greats as Cole Porter and the Gershwins. She performed at the Festival de l’Estaque in the south of France, the Four Seasons Biltmore, the Crowne Plaza Hotel & several wineries in California. Kristin was nominated for a MAVRIC Award for Best Female Jazz Voice in 2008 & 2009, plus Best Female Vocalist for four years at the VC Music Awards. Kristin Lee’s Jazz Band is flexible in size, which can range from a piano or guitar accompanist, to adding acoustic bass, drums and brass; whichever will best suit your event.

"I hired Kristin to play at my mom's 90th Birthday party. I really appreciated that although she lived quite a distance from where the party was being held, she arrived early and ready to go. My mom was so pleased as it was a surprise for her! Kristin beautifully performed the songs I requested which were so appropriate for the party and guests! Kristin's keyboard player was also great...both were very professional and accommodating. I would definitely hire her again and recommend her!" - Susan H
