Smolder is an album of fire, about to ignite, fully ablaze, or newly extinguished. Two truly original songs, conceptual arrangements and a stellar band all combine to create a dramatically satisfying, musically adventurous journey of flame. Kristen Lee Sergeant is a jazz vocalist with effervescent energy, musical intensity and dramatic flair. Her ensemble writing on this record includes alto flute and cello, and her song selection spans 80's pop to classic standards. Theatrically trained, Kristen show her dramatic roots in her onstage presence and deep commitment to the lyric. Her musical spontaneity and intensity of feeling shine through in her choices, making her a live performer as spontaneous and exciting to watch in person as listen to on record.
•"A special singer can evoke a thermometer's span of temperatures while sustaining a singular fire within. Kristen Lee Sergeant is special."
