I learned about Kristine recently while seeking a fully organized 9-piece string section on very short notice. Following a single discussion and one or two emails about logistics, Kristine arrived on session day with the complete ensemble ready to go. By the third take, we had what we wanted. She’s our first call now.
Working with Little Kruta has opened up the mysterious world of classical strings and made them totally accessible for someone like myself, a professional guitarist with gaping holes in my musical knowledge. Kristine has always met me exactly where I am, whether that means gathering musicians for last minute gigs, being the musical director to reinterpret older quartet music in my repertoire, or helping me arrange pieces that I built with midi in my DAW. Kristine respects everyone no matter where their talent lies. She thrives on collaboration, and is one of the most efficient people I’ve ever worked with. I always come away from our sessions having learned something new and feeling like my experience was in one way or another invaluable.
Little Kruta’s professionalism and talent made the experience working with them smooth and enjoyable. They were able to take the music to a place it had never gone before making it a once in a lifetime experience.
Little Kruta performed a studio session for my album, and came in prepared, passionate, driven to get the best takes, and played absolutely beautiful. I’ve also been to LK live shows and they are not to be missed. You are truly witnessing a community of artists working at the top of their craft for the love of it.
Kristine is one of the most professional, hard-working, and kindest artists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Our collaborative process creating unique Hum performances together for Little Kruta has been a joy and privilege. What she has developed with her project Little Kruta is completely one-of-a-kind and necessary in today’s music scene in New York, and a gigantic asset to collaborators and audiences alike.
