Album - Lost in a Dream - Release Date: July 16, 2021

"Lost in a Dream is a stunningly beautiful, moving, and satisfying album. Kristin Callahan is an extraordinary interpreter and performer of these exquisite pieces of music. The arrangements are wonderful, the musicians are precise and poetic, but Kristin herself is the reason we came." -Travis Rogers Jr, The Jazz Owl

"She is riveting as she gets fragile around the tapped percussive strings on “Once I Loved”. As flexible and strong as Cirque du Soleil." -George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly

"Make no mistake about this: she’s a thrush of the first order. She’s no stranger to lighting an intimate fire and letting it simmer." -Chris Spector, Midwest Record
