Some may consider an independent music release to be something less than great or something that deviates from the norm regarding expectations. Nothing could be further from the truth especially when listening to Miss Kristins own creation MASTERPIECE, which is set for release this June 2012.
Kristin composed and recorded MASTERPIECE herself, performing nearly all the instruments for Big Fuss Records. Kristin has persistently and consistently garnered steam and praise for her autonomous do-it-yourself approach to recording and releasing new music.
MASTERPIECE is eleven masterful and memorable tracks that touch on subjects of time, youth, tragedy, romance and the afterlife. Listen to the new tracks by visiting the official pre-release listening party at Big Fuss Music.
The independent music movement began way before Miss Kristin embarked on her journey of self discovery and music production in 2003. During the post war period in the US and the UK, when the major companies formed a clout, they did not allow any other company to get in sideways. Efforts by new producers to launch independent labels were thwarted by this nexus and many independent ventures failed. This effort has continued ever since, but it was the advent of the internet that gave the independent music industry and new music artists like Miss Kristin a shot in the arm. Today, multitudes of talented individuals and multi instrumentalists are no longer at the mercy of the big labels.
Kristin determined the best way to handle her large catalog, as an independent artist with an independent music release, would be to learn how to professionally record, mix and master the music herself through trial and error. She had the attitude that, -If the big guys are doing it, why can't I? Kristin held fast to this mentality and over the course of nine CDs with determination put into practice, Kristins skills grew immensely.
With each consecutive release, Miss Kristin took the time to promote her recordings to ensure the success of her independent music releases. She used video introductions, social networking sites, and online interviews as well as radio distribution to spread the word about her one of a kind style and sound.
She opened her own record label in 2002 in order to distribute and brand her name and message. The Company, Big Fuss Records, Inc. today, is well on its way with new artists to watch such as blues sensation, Patricia Wilder who is presently recording her latest CD in the Big Fuss Records studio with Kristin overseeing the project.
Today the music is spreading and touching lives around the globe. More music directors are spinning the tracks and Kristin is rewarded by her efforts. The goal has always been to create a movement that connects people around the world; to bring about positive change through music and to make a statement in the music industry, as a powerful force for change in the new frontier.
