Gina Kronstadt

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.

Breding “October Comes Too Soon is so flawless and artistic it places Gina in the very upper tier of active recording artists, something all of the session musicians already knew. I am very grateful for the complex, eloquent and imaginative work that brought this recording to fruition.”
