Kristine Best dipped her toe in the “waters” of the music industry quite late in life in December 2016. As a focused, tenacious, determined and hard-working person, Kristine devised and implemented a plan to achieve her goals, initially as a songwriter, and subsequently as a performer as well. Over the last few years, Kristine bought recording software, learned to record track-by-track, made a demo CD of her original songs and began performing at open mics playing her ukulele initially and later guitar. Kristine now also plays congas, djembe, cajon, washboard, other percussion and bit of bass and harmonica.

Any tips that go into Kristine’s tip jar, would go towards a professional studio recording of her work. She also needs another guitar for a back-up.
