Kristen Lawrence, Halloween musician extraordinaire, began her musical career as a young child. Her father is a pollster, who used his polling and survey experience to author a book called “How Americans View Mormonism: Seven Steps To Improve Our Image” , but he is also a pianist and organist. From his inspiration, a mother who drove her to organ lessons in a cathedral and an early love of classical music, Kristen Lawrence became a skilled and versatile keyboardist, playing both piano and organ.
Kristen was influenced early on by musicians such as J. S. Bach, Danny Elfman, Tori Amos, Loreena McKennitt, and Ralph Vaughan Williams. From such a variety of styles and artists, Kristen perfected her craft and found a spooky, unfulfilled niche in the modern music industry: Halloween.
