Kiirstin Marilyn - Biography

In late 2011, Kiirstin Kuhi found herself at a crossroads.

She had served as the dynamic front person and co-songwriter for several different bands since 2005, from progressive post-hardcore band, Ground to Machine to genre-bending piano rock band, Verity In Stereo. Inspired and motivated by the successes of each act but seeking to grow as an artist, Kiirstin Marilyn was born.

For her debut EP, "Something to Die For," Kiirstin enlisted the production talents of Brian DeNeeve (From Autumn To Ashes, touring guitarist for The Wanted) and Todd Weinstock (Glassjaw; Men, Women, and Children). After debuting her new act at the legendary Bitter End in March of 2012, she went on to win her second RAW: Musician of the Year award and toured regionally in the US as well as internationally with shows in London, England, Toronto, Canada, and the YouBloom festival in Dublin, Ireland.

In the summer of 2014, Kiirstin began working with producer Benny Reiner on a sophomore EP effort that would eventually be entitled "Ghosts," aptly named to reflect the people and events of Kiirstin's past that shape the person and artist she is today. This eclectic collection of intensely personal and sometimes confrontational songs with soaring vocals and hard-hitting beats eventually caught the attention of indie label Spectra Music Group who released "Ghosts" on May 6th 2016 online and in stores worldwide.
