★★★★★ "I have recently seen Kristen perform with her band at a few different venues in Austin and I have to say that I am very impressed. It is not every day that you see a live band that has a harpist playing Bob Marley or Coldplay cover songs. It was a great experience to hear Kristen's twist on some contemporary and top 40 songs"
- Craig W., Morelia's Mexican Grill, December 2013

She was a great help and invited us into her home a few weeks before the wedding so that we could sample and make decisions to personalize our ceremony. The sounds was absolutely wondrous and I would recommend to anyone to give a harp whether you like classical or modern music and I ESPECIALLY recommend Kristen!"
