Working several years as a school teacher and a business owner, being a singer/songwriter is an identity Kristin Jorgenson is slowly growing into. She wrote her first song at the age of 33 in roughly 3 minutes.

For Kristin, songwriting serves as a way to make sense of the heartache, celebrate the gratitude, banish the worry, and give voice to the soul's longing for love. Her lyrics and her ethereal, almost bluesy voice weave an honest tapestry of a life filled with equal parts unabashed joy and the kind of agony that tests the resiliency of the heart. It's easy to see yourself in her songs and feel comforted.
As the volume of our chaotic world turns up, for Kristin it feels natural to cut through the noise with a simple song. Until now this has been mostly a private expression but in 2016, she made herself a promise to share a selection of her songs on an EP called Slow Blooming Thing, lovingly produced by Paul Hansen of the The Grownup Noise.

Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, Boston's The Grownup Noise have evolved into a rousing and innovative pop-music outfit, bridging the gap between Americana music and Indie Rock. With a genuine respect for every style of music, this band and its songwriter, Paul Hansen, are song obsessed. And more than happy to garner quotes like this from The Onion A.V. Club: «The Grownup Noise's best asset, however is the songwriting, with lines of love and the changing seasons coming out as gently and colorful as the music itself». Or this from The Boston Globe: «One of Boston's most promising outfits...a sense of sincerity, wonder, and poetry beats at the heart of skewed folk-pop songs». Originally founded in 2005 as a duo by Hansen and bassist Adam Sankowski. After numerous sold-out shows, 7 national tours (many in a veggie-oil powered conversion van), and 4 albums, the band has grown many long sturdy branches, flowers, a few weeds, and has amassed a dense variation of meaningful characters along the way. Other members of The Grownup Noise forever family/guild include: Kyle Crane, Katie Franich, Todd Marston, Aine Fujioka, Rachel Barringer, Dave Middleton, and Attis Clopton. They've had the honor of sharing stages with everyone from Tommy Stinson of The Replacements, Aimee Mann, Counting Crows and Evan Dando to Thao With The Get Down Stay Down, Lee Fields, Rebirth Brass Band, and comedian Patton Oswalt. And they were joined by Dana Colley of Morphine on their most recent release 'Stewing'. They celebrated their first official SXSW showcase in 2012 and their music has been featured on MTV, NPR, documentary films, and other TV shows, including 90210. Their song 'Carnival' won a songwriting contest judged by NYTimes best-selling author/music writer Steve Almond and was the most downloaded song in 2011 for Paste Magazine's 'Songs For Haiti'. People often ask about the meaning of the name. The Grownup Noise is something to rebel against, like fear, complacency, the closing of your heart, the stress of bills etc.
