Caitlin Krisko

Caitlin Krisko is the lead vocalist for The Broadcast, a six piece internationally touring soulful blues roots rock band from Asheville, NC. Born in Detroit, Krisko’s family soon thereafter relocated to New York City where she attended the prestigious Professional Performing Arts School alongside other ambitious young artists. After graduating top of her class, Krisko went on to attend Circle in the Square, a private arts conservatory, studying vocal performance with some of the finest instructors in Manhattan. Krisko's music career began after graduation at The Bitter End in NYC and wound up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC. Like Dylan in reverse, lead singer Krisko grew restless in the city that never sleeps and dropped everything to move to Asheville, N.C., in 2010. It was there Krisko met guitarist Aaron Austin spending the next couple of years working as a songwriting duo releasing their debut LP, Dodge the Arrow, in 2013 (recorded at famed Echo Mountain Studios with LA producer, Eric “Mixerman” Sarafin). The record was an exploration of “bombastic, larger-than-life” sounds which went on to sell over 10,000 copies independently and ranked #4 on the college radio charts. In 2015, The Broadcast got “the call” from producer Jim Scott (Tedeschi Trucks Band, Tom Petty), and the band began recording their sophomore effort, From the Horizon, which was released in June to rave reviews from Relix Magazine, Paste, and Live for Live Music. From The Horizon embodies a new sense of home, comfortably seating The Broadcast in the company of their Americana contemporaries. With a mix of soul, blues and classic rock arrangements, Caitlin has shared stages with Mavis Staples, John Prine, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The Wood Brothers, Brandi Carlisle, Keller Williams, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, George Porter Jr. (Funky Meters), Betty LaVette, Charles Bradley and Holly Williams, among others.

Singing not only offers an opportunity to release emotions through sound, but also inherently creates a sense of community wherever it goes. Caitlin works well with children and adults on both a beginning and advanced level, and will tailor each lesson to the student depending on their needs. Caitlin has experience teaching various styles of voice ranging from rock, jazz, folk, blues, musical theater, and pop. She like to encourage students to realize much like a guitar or piano, the body is an instrument and our voices are the strings and keys. Learn more about Caitlin at: www.facebook.com/caitlinkrisko
