Kristian Espiritu is one part California girl and one part New Yorker. Born in Queens, raised in Los Angeles, and having toured and studied in many cities across the country, Kristian is happy to make her home in Brooklyn, New York where she fumbles on her ukulele and loves to tell bad dad jokes.
In constant pursuit of expressing oneself and changing the world, Kristian is the head-banging front-woman of the New York-based alternative rock band Over The Pass, for whom she writes original music with guitarist Brian Tsao. She is also a background vocalist for Brooklyn-based artist, The Landing, performing at notable venues such as Webster Hall, Brooklyn Bowl, and The Bowery Electric. Kristian is a regular singer in LezCab, a not-for-profit theater company for queer women in musical theater, and has performed at Joe's Pub, Le Poisson Rouge, and the Duplex. If that weren't enough, she is also co-creator/producer/performer of the all women's cabaret, In The Boys' Club.
Kristian is currently touring the country with the first national tour of School of Rock! Other credits include Here Lies Love (Public Theater), New York Musical Festival, Music Theater of Connecticut, and Disney Cruise Line.
