A deep, creative, present and soulful/spiritual musician, Kristin Hoffmann strives “to cultivate a space of openness and possibility, through the vehicles of music, sound and vibration, in which inspiration, creativity, love, growth and interconnectedness can be shared and experienced freely by all who choose to tap in.” Hoffmann created The Human Compass as a “musical guide for those who follow their hearts,” and New Directions encourages further exploration of the shadows and light of life.With influences ranging from Johann Sebastian Bach, Imogen Heap, Massive Attack, and Sigur Ros to Annie Lenox, The Human Compass features Hoffmann’s poised, expressive, and powerful music that penetrates the intellectual and spiritual side of the art, “[making] her audience look inward and go to places they would not normally go” (Streetcred Music).  “Although she hardly shies away from real-world concerns, her moody chamber-pop songs tend to be more inward-directed, blending neoromantic piano, terse lyrics and Hoffmann’s nuanced, sometimes delicate, sometimes explosive vocals.Now, Hoffmann takes her sound one step further, remixing three tracks with industrial sound-weaver Troy Stallman (aka Rise of Troy) on The Human Compass: New Directions. Enhancing her mysterious allure and suspenseful emotion with reverberating effects and electronic beats, the new mixes demonstrate the versatility of Hoffmann’s craft and are set for release next year.http://www.kristinhoffmann.com/
