A shocked Jenn Cristy was approached by John Mellencamp after an IU basketball game one fateful spring season almost eleven years ago. Since then, she spent a period singing backup for the Coug, raising her children and recording solo material. Her sound is natural, piano-driven soul, backed life by a three-piece rock band. Cristy is a classically trained pianist, but has the delicate runs and growls of a natural vocalist. The title track, “Crawl,” has a sprawling, driving beat and Cristy's signature clear, pure vocals. Notably, Cristy and her band raised the majority of the funds on Kickstarter for this album. They'll perform with Blue Moon Revue.
