Along with a refreshingly fun and quirky personality, up-and-coming Cali-based singer Kristine Mirelle blends the jazzy sound of Amy Winehouse with a pop style you would expect from an artist like Melanie Martinez – in short, she has one of the most noteworthy, radio-ready voices we have heard in a long time. Using the deep, sultry tones of her vocals mixed with a healthy dose of 60s soul influence, Kristine music easily satisfies listeners across all ages and tastes. Whether it be a smokey jazz club in the basements of the Lower East Side, or the nightlife mecca of West Hollywood, she is embraced with open arms. She describes her sound as pop retro soul, and we couldn’t agree more. Today we are overwhelmingly excited to bring you the exclusive world premiere of her brand new video “Freakin’ Mess.”
We could go on and on about her talents and accomplishments, like being a top 10 contestant on The X Factor Season 3. Or how she performs 250+ shows a year both solo and with her band. She’s hit not only the club circuit of Los Angeles, but also entertained high rollers in Vegas at spots like Palms, the Mirage, Wynn Las Vegas, and is in especially high demand at private events for the NFL, Porsche and many more!
To fully understand Kristine Mirelle, however, it’s worth digging a little deeper. From her hometown of Roswell, NM, she has also displayed a knack for entrepreneurship and benevolence. Her Lil Kristi’s line of Mexican food can be found in Whole Foods, Sprouts, and more than 100 stores in New Mexico, while appearing on various cooking shows! Perhaps most importantly, Kristine actively volunteers in countries around the world performing and teaching music. From special education centers in Thailand to AIDS stricken communities in Africa, it’s part of her mission statement to counteract suffering of the world with the joy of music.
Now, despite her impressive credentials, Kristine may not have gotten the memo. The video is a lighthearted romp through a self-inflicted disastrous day with Kristine and her pint-sized partner in crime. Literally. Think of him as the devil on her shoulders encouraging her to make all the worst decisions. After an early morning jailbreak of sorts the pair hit the town and bring chaos with them. Stealing ice cream from a passerby, holding up a cupcake shop with silly string, and terrorizing the streets in their tiny whips are all just part of their day. It’s all a genuine warning to a potential “Mr. Interested,” that Kristine is much deeper and complex than just a pretty face!
