Singer, songwriter, guitarist and arranger, Kristen Barry was first heard on 1996's Home Alive project. Now with "The Beginning, The Middle, The End," her debut album, Kristen gets to tell the full story. Born January 1970, Barry began playing piano at age five, and for years wanted to be a classical pianist. Music took a back seat for several years, following the death of her teacher/mentor, but at 12 she became interested in rock music and started seeing local bands. At 15 she began a four-year stint as keyboard player with a group.
