The music ranges from raw and expanding to dark and introspective – carried by Kristin’s playful vocal. In addition to writing pop songs, she has done Norwegian folk music and larger compositions. Spring 2013, she arranged the Norwegian classical choral composition ”The 12 Marker Stones” for choir, soloists and orchestra.
