Waiting to Be Found
Fusing pop-rock with a healthy dose of singer-songwriter introspection, Kristine Seelye "is a charismatic, knock-out of a performer; definitely someone to put on your 'must see' list." With the ability to convey passion through the warmth of her voice and her touch on the piano, Kristine delivers emotionally arresting performances with songs that move and inspire. With two 2006 Top 10 FMQB National Radio Airplay singles, songwriting honors from Nashville's Embassy Music, a Michigan Merit Award for an original music video, and consistently enthusiastic and positive reviews, Kristine is leaving her mark on the music world. Her new CD "Waiting to Be Found" is a simple yet poignant collection of songs that explore the need in all of us to embrace our dreams and truly live them. Produced by John Beland, celebrated guitarist for such music legends as Kris Kristopherson, Ricky Nelson, Dolly Parton, and Linda Ronstadt, the CD features melodic, piano-driven pop rock, with rich, warm vocals, John's signature guitars, and lyrics wrapped in effortless songwriting. From the decisive declaration "I Still Believe," to the hopeful yet resolute "Waiting to Be Found" and the haunting "I'll Be There," Kristine has the ability to transform words into moving moments. Often compared to Sarah McLachlan, Carly Simon, Sheryl Crow or Jimmy Webb, Kristine's music resonates with timeless appeal. Her touch on the piano exudes a distinctive effortlessness while still conveying strength and intensity; and with a voice that is classic yet fresh; compelling yet delicate; soothing yet urgent, Kristine is not just another performer; she "will make you remember how powerful music can be." Beginning her music career at the age of 12, Kristine participated in the typical outlets of church and school choirs, musicals, and played with National Award winning Jazz and Concert bands in High School. Her talents earned her a scholarship to Interlochen Arts Academy Summer Camp and saw her playing live in Mexico, the Ukraine, Israel and on Radio RRM in Poland. Kristine also taught high school German and was an exchange student to Germany. John Beland recently noted: "This is an artist I truly believe will be with us for many years to come. Be sure to get in on the ground floor of what is destined to be an amazing career. After one listen you'll realize this is real talent." For more, lend an eye and ear to www.kristineseelye.com.

Robert Downes Northern Express Magazine 'Settling into my seat at a Kristine Seelye concert is as satisfying as decanting a treasured vintage into fine crystal. Great experiences of the past never fail to heighten expectation, but the true joy comes the moment the music begins anew.' Dale Hull Consultant in Arts Administration Former Director: Crooked Tree Arts Center - Petoskey, MI 'Kristine is a remarkably gifted songwriter who's vocal & keyboard ability seems to intertwine with every one of her songs. The two go together like hands in gloves. The result is a uniquely original artistic style full of deep maturity, passion, and a touch of humor. After one listen you'll realize this is real talent.'
