About Me

Gina Kronstadt was born in Raleigh North Carolina. Her family was from the South but moved to Salt Lake City Utah after her chemist father was offered a dream job. Gina was surrounded by music constantly while growing up, being that her mother was a lover of Classical music.

At the age of 10, she started studying the Violin with members of the Utah Symphony. During her schooling, she was Concertmaster and also singing with both the Madrigals and Jazz band. While studying at the University of Utah and Westminster College, Gina was drawn into Theory, Composition and Arranging. Studying with wonderful professors and having visiting faculty members like Frank Zappa, Jean-Luc Ponty, Clark Terry, Pat Williams, and Tom Scott inspired her to take that passion to the next level.

After graduating from college, Gina moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the studios as a Violinist and Singer/Songwriter. Playing on Records, TV and Film (see resume), she still found time to sing for a few jingles, and records before deciding to dive into her own recordings as the Singer, (having studied with Seth Riggs and Robert Edwards) Songwriter, Arranger, Concertmaster and Producer.

My Jazz Story

Starting in college I started being exposed to amazing Jazz and other creative styled artists. (Frank Zappa, Clark Terry, Chuck Mangione, Joni Mitchell's band, Blood Sweat & Tears, Jean- Luc Ponty etc. ) We had such wonderful visiting faculty members as well as professors who taught theory, composition and improvisation. I do Love most styles of music but my songs always have an undertone of Jazz, whether in the chords, or my phrasing and production. Jazz makes me say "oooohhh" a lot when I hear certain players whether live or on recordings. A tight voicing, something unexpected, a Freedom to experiment and completely express oneself. Yeah, so That's why I Love Jazz.
