i started making up songs in 1986.
i made an album in 1994.
i also started a tour in 1994
and that tour is, in a way, still going.

i never made a record so good
that i could just sit home
or did a show so bad
that i had to.
and man, i’ve done some shit shows,
shit albums too.
some of them are pretty good though,
but you know,
it’s been a while.
i really need to put out a good album soon
or i’m finished.

sometimes these days i sing with a band.
i think we made a good album.
david schools of widespread panic is our leader.
i make up our lyrics….we’re a jam band.
our songs only go on about an hour or so but they’re still pretty long.

cool people jam with us all the time and we have like a million shirts and shit.
i personally think we’re the seventh best band in the whole jam thing.

on this tour i am coming to town with nothing but my guitar and stories
like the old days.
you know…
pick a little
talk a little
pick a little
talk a little
cheap cheap cheap
talk a lot
pick a little more.

and not to brag,
but i also wrote a book that everybody loves
so i am an author now.
plus i play everywhere,
pretty much all the time
everybody shows up
and they pretty much always love it. 

Singer/songwriter Kristy Kruger draws inspiration from varied sources -- including the catalogs of Tom Waits, Emmylou Harris, Bessie Smith, and Aimee Mann -- to create a diverse brand of Americana. Having played piano since the age of five, she began embracing composition as a high school student, winning several competitions in her native Texas and earning a music scholarship from the University of Southern California. Once enrolled, she assembled a band and hit the Los Angeles club circuit in support of her songs, several of which later found their way onto her debut album, 1998's Bachelor of Apathy. Kruger released the album on her own label, Do It Yerself Records, which also issued the follow-up effort The Noise I Make in 2000. While on the road in support her sophomore album, Kruger crossed paths with producer/engineer Andrew Gilchrist, who had previously worked with Ani DiFranco. Gilchrist agreed to produce Kruger's next release, and the songwriter relocated to New Orleans to record An Unauthorized Guide to the Human Anatomy, an anatomically themed album that paired the songwriter with a full band for the first time. Songs from a Dead Man's Couch followed in 2006.
