When most people envision the cutting edge of hip-hop, they likely don’t imagine a skinny suburban girl with a pair of degrees from Stanford; that is, unless they know of K.Flay.

During her youth in the greater Chicago area, Kristine Flaherty connected with music early on, immersing herself in her father’s classic rock collection and letting loose to the sounds of P-Funk. Life gave her the opportunity to attend Stanford University, and in her sophomore year, she started making music for hobby with the help of a nearby friend that produced house music. Her escape from the rigors of a top school blossomed into performances, and has grown into a career, while she grabbed degrees in psychology and sociology along the way.

K.Flay serves as a producer, lyricist and vocalist in all of her releases and tours. She blends the sounds of samples and mash-ups with her own electronic loops and sequences, often charged by heavy bass and shredding guitar licks, to create a style that’s both innovative and dynamic. A capable vocalist, she mingles melodic verse and hooks with flowing, intelligent rap, often demonstrating a talent to handle a very quick pace, which she likens to stuffing words into a vacuum seal suitcase.

She stopped by the Magnolia Avenue studios of 88.1 KDHX, before a performance at Blueberry Hill, while on her "Eyes Shut" tour, promoting her newest EP of the same name.
