Kristin Carter – Songs and Stories | Kristin Carter | TEDxLangleyED


Kristin Carter shares some of her original music and the stories behind the songs. Choir girl turned country troubadour, Kristin Carter’s high-energy stage presence and dynamic vocals can move, excite, and empower an audience at any given moment.

Originally from White Rock, Kristin grew up with the modern country vibes of Shania Twain, The Dixie Chicks, and Faith Hill while also taking cues from the soulful vocals of Beyoncé.

Drawn to choir at age 5, Kristin Carter used the timeless vocal practice to train her voice for over 15 years until – after a university education took her to Halifax and back – she found inspiration for writing country songs on her daily Vancouver commute.

In 2016, she turned her full creative attention to the genre and recorded a series of YouTube videos that garnered over 75,000+ views.

With a pop-driven country sound punctuated by powerhouse vocals and lyrics that inspire confidence, Kristin Carter’s country music story has only just begun. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
