"...one of the purest, most unaffected voices around." The Pitch Weekly

Hailing from Kansas, singer/songwriter Kirsten Paludan's music evokes the landscape of the plains – the contrast of gentle, rolling hills and austere, open stretches of land; the stunning, stark beauty of a Midwestern sunset. An eclectic mix of folk, Americana, alt-country, and soul (with a twinge of electronica), her "masterful, world-weary voice" sets the tone throughout the music, drawing the listener in with a "seductive delivery [that] is ethereal, almost ghostly".
Performing regularly in Kansas City, she is one of the area's most respected musicians – in the studio, on stage, and in film. Her band Olympic Size has been featured nationally on MTV's "Real World: Sydney" and in the full length documentary "72 Musicians". As a solo artist, she has shared the stage with legendary indie acts such as Juliana Hatfield and Missy Higgins. Paludan's debut CD "Princess in the Tower" is available on iTunes and CDBaby.
