About Kristin Cotts and What About Rosalind
Downers Grove, IL
Can you feel the pull?
Kristin Cotts is the front woman of What About Rosalind, a stunningly original alt/rock band with eloquent, incisive lyrics and lush, varied arrangements. Kristin has been performing in Chicago and beyond for the past eight years with the help of some of the best classical, rock, and jazz musicians Chicago has to offer. Also a composer of classical music, Kristin writes edgy alt-rock tunes, with folk and classical influences. She’s been influenced in equal parts by classical composers, sixties folkies and rockers, and eighties pop tunes but allows each song to serve its own purpose rather than forcing it into the auspices of genre.
Mixing wit with sadness and a straightforward delivery with an irony-laden roll of the eyes, the objectives of Kristin Cotts and What About Rosalind are to connect emotionally with the audience and entertain. Kristin's lyrics delve into the beauty, angst, mystery, and joy that comprise the natural world and the human condition. Kristin believes in the power of music to heal broken hearts and bridge the gaps among us.
Kristin released Gravity The Moon in January 2010 with a sold-out standing room only CD Release Party at Fitzgerald’s in Berwyn. With Andon Davis, Anne Patterson, Tony Dale, Al Ehrich, Jeanne T. Arrigo, Cathie Van Wert Menard, Tom Bowling, and Steve Schuster, it was a great way to start off 2010 and christen the new album!
