While she may have started out as "Barbra Steisand's little sister" - Roslyn Kind has made a big name for herself thanks to acclaimed recordings, appearances in concert, on Broadway and television.
L.A. Times: "Forget that Roslyn Kind is Barbra Streisand's kid sister. She's to good and too special to have to worry about comparisons..."
The London Times: “To say she is superb would be an understatement.”
The New York Post: “She’s so good on so many levels; it’s difficult to categorize her. This elegant, beautiful, petite, dynamo delight rules the stage with a royal command that demands adoration from every seat in the house.”
In addition to her work on stage and in the studio, Roslyn also takes pride in her work for various animal welfare, Alzheimer’s and AIDS related charitable organizations including HSUS, APLA and Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS.

Our special guest on A Kind Voice on Music is the wonderful Upstate Rubdown.These folks are a diverse group of musicians dedicated to creating fun acoustic pop music, with creative rhythms and harmonies. The band combines backgrounds in Jazz, Gospel, Folk, Bluegrass, Latin, Show Tunes, and Classical music, with a shared love of Soul, Motown, and classic R and B, to create a uniquely enjoyable sound. Imagine the Lennon Sisters meet Mumford and Sons with Bob Willis and The Texas Playboys to have sixteen espressos then listen to Django Rienhart albums. Let the dancing begin!
Host Mitch Ruth will ask members of the group about busking, upstate New York winters, their current projects. With luck, he will also seek an answer to the eternal question, "Where did my drink go?"

Hamilton, Ontario's ROSLYN WITTER had the chance of a lifetime to sing on stage with country superstar Keith Urban this past September. She was given the opportunity after winning a contest through radio station KX94.7 - she entered a video in which she sang the hit Keith Urban/Miranda Lambert duet We Were Us.
Roslyn grew up surrounded by country music. Her father is award winning country singer Jim Witter. As a child, she made an appearance in her Dad’s music video for “Tough As A Pickup Truck”.
“I’ve been singing since I could talk, so I’ve been performing with him since I was three or four years old," she explains. "And he’s been such an influence, so supportive of me.”
Roslyn has just released a new song she wrote called Your Christmas Song which is available at iTunes.
Another Kind Voice on Music will feature The Kissers from Madison Wisconsin. After a six year hiatus the Irish Folk Rock group has reunited to create an all new album "Three Sails"
The Kissers are known for the frenzied energy of their live shows, their off-kilter humor, and their eclectic instrumentation. Violin, banjo, accordion, and an array of sonic effects combine with diverse musical influences for a unique sound that straddles the gap between indie-rock and Irish music. Audiences and reviewers, trying to describe them, cite bands as varied as the Shins, Pogues, and the Decemberists. The Kissers maintain that they are rock musicians who learned to play Irish music, not vice versa, and so their music sometimes feels more at home in a club than in a pub.
The Kissers will join host Mitch Ruth and for our show, we will feature some past favorites from the Band, discuss the future, hopefully get a few sneak peeks and find out just what they wear under those kilts (wait, that's Scottish....never mind). I may also ask that eternal question: "If you were a tree what would be your favorite brand of breath mint?"
