Kristin Hoffmann is a singer/songwriter based in New York City. She grew up studying classical piano, opera, guitar and composition, and has toured with The Wallflowers and Tina Dico, as well as opening for Brandi Carlile, Feist, Howie Day, Dar Williams, Richie Havens and Ben Lee.
Kristin Hoffmann is a singer-songwriter who has a gift, one we can all experience through her ability to be open. As a human compass, she navigates through her own waters right into ours, with sound, like poetry without words. Her perfect pitch is a serene perfume. We, as an audience, are the witnesses and we watch as she volunteers her soul’s journey.
Personal meaning in her music is secondary. “It’s not really about me,” says Kristin. “Music is my vehicle.” Her voice often feels like a ceremonial language from a deep, universal, sound code. She works with a certain delicacy on a cellular level.
The red walls of the music café enclose us in a net of intimacy, and we watch Kristin trace the air again with her hand, as if writing music in thin air, just for us. We become bonded by her sound that shadows around our silhouettes and pools us together. Her secrets become our secrets.
Kristin says, “Music for me is about communion, a way to bring people together, a reminder of infinite possibility.”
Cor unum, via una ~ one heart, one way.
It’s startling how vulnerable she is as she calls forth her music. Her voice feels like our own. There is a certain familiarity and it becomes a constant reminder that we all come from sound, that common and planetary heart beat we can feel and recognize. “My goal,” she says, “is to spread love, light, peace, and truth through the vehicle of music and energetic frequencies.”
Her magnetism makes the bond. Her truth is subversive. She is revolutionary.
