From an early age, Kristy was influenced by music and some of the greats like Elvis, Alanis Morrissett and The Cure. Kristy’s acoustic, rootsy brand of pop music has evolved through working with some of the best in the industry including Graham (Buzz) Bidstrup (GanGajang), Clive Young, Rick Price and Anthony Snape.
“I’ve travelled all over the world from Africa to Asia to the UK, Europe and the States plus have learnt to love different cultures and appreciate everyone and everything as we are all different.” ~ Kristy Coote
