My name is Kalissa Georgia Kramer, I'm a 17 year old from Northeast Iowa, and I have a passion for writing songs, performing, and playing guitar.
The first instrument that I discovered was my voice. I have been singing ever since I can remember. I would sing Britney Spears and Toby Keith constantly. It drove my family nuts. It wasn't until my elementary music teacher really encouraged me to keep singing. She was a huge inspiration to me and still is today. I was in the Christmas programs at school, and church, musicals, band, pretty much anything that would put me on a stage.
My brother Karl started taking guitar lessons when I was in about 7th grade. Karl was AMAZING at guitar in no time and he picked it right up. One day, Karl couldn't make it to his guitar lesson so Mom and Dad took me instead.
During that time I was going through my Beatles phase and I learned how to play Let it Be. I must have played that song a million times over until he taught me a new song.
After that I begged mom and dad to let me let me take lessons so I've been playing guitar and writing songs for about 3 years now.
I perform locally at bars and fairs and contests but my dream would be to move to Nashville to pursue a career in songwriting.
My very first demo/album will be released March 25th, 2013. It will be available on iTunes, Amazon mP3, and Spotify. Check it out!
