Kristyn Leigh is a Christian singer and songwriter from Louisville, Kentucky who has been ministering to audiences around the United States since she was 16 years old.
Her 2012 release on Creative Soul Records, Somebody Save, is a collection of songs written completely by Kristyn for the very first time.
"I'm so excited about this project because I decided to really explore what God was telling me to write," she says. "These songs are very personal to me, and I feel I have some great messages to bring to my fans and audiences everywhere."
It was evident to everyone around her that, even at a young age, Kristyn had a powerful voice. But in high school, she began to explore a different musical road -- a road that didn't mean singing at church or singing in a rock band -- but a mixture of both.
She began working with veteran producer Eric Copeland of Creative Soul Records. She recorded her first CD, Glimpse, and appeared in over a hundred concerts at churches, festivals, conferences, teen centers, and other venues.
With her sophomore release, The Heavy And The Holy, Kristyn continued her ministry, reaching out to teens with songs like "Bulletproof Girl,” "Invisible," and "Pent Up." The CD also highlights Kristyn's elegant voice with orchestral arrangements, including a soul-wrenching rendition of "The Old Rugged Cross,” and the powerful orchestral rock ballad "Glimpse.”
Now Kristyn is older, a college graduate, and has started a career in Music Therapy. But her passion is singing, and her calling is ministry.
"The song 'Somebody Save' really talks about getting the word to people who may not hear it, and that's always been my goal with my music ministry, and many of the songs on this album have that same strong outreach message. We have to reach out to youth and those who need the Word and offer them a hand, or word that may bring them back to Jesus."
Again for this album, Kristyn has paired with producer Eric Copeland and Creative Soul Records in Nashville, TN to get the music out to the world.
