Kristen Karma : My name is Kristen Karma and I am a Pop Artist out of Toronto Canada. My music is a combination of catchy dance beats, epic guitar solos and infectious pop melodies.
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Kristen Karma : I’ve always loved music I just never really knew how to voice it. It wasn’t until about 10 years ago after I went into Audio Engineering School that I decided I wanted to be in front of the fans singing my music. It was this urge inside of me that needed to get out!
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “Party Heroes”?
Kristen Karma : I wrote Party Heroes after I was hosting a party when I had first moved to Toronto. People were starting to leave around 11-1130pm and a friend of mine showed up with her entourage and really got the party going!! People that were leaving where all of a sudden taking back off their shoes and joining in. We didn’t stop until the early morning! After it was over I thought I needed to write about this! It’s one of those pop tunes that just makes you get up and dance!
