“WHAT’S YOUR STORY?,” the sixth album from internationally recognized jazz artist KRISTIN KORB answers that very question with 12 timeless tunes that celebrate her story as a jazz vocalist and bassist. “What’s Your Story?” will be released on Korb’s own label, Double K Music, in the U.S. and Europe on April 2, 2013. The album will be available on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, www.kristinkorb.com and select retail outlets.

A singing double bassist with a deep sense of swing, Korb combines the instrumental influence of Ray Brown and Charles Mingus with the vocal styling of Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald to create a sound all her own. Exhilarating to watch live, she sings and plays the bass as effortlessly as she breathes.

Korb and her All-Star trio featuring musical powerhouses Bruce Forman on guitar and Jeff Hamilton on drums, share an inspired set of popular songs using innovative arrangements. From Porter to Pinkard, Grouya to Caymmi - "What’s Your Story?" treats listeners to fresh renditions of some of the all time great compositions and introduces an original song, “Always Searching for My Baby” written by Amber Navran.

She earned her Music Education degree at Eastern Montana College and her master's in Classical Bass Performance at the University of California, San Diego. It was while she was a student at UCSD that her professor, Bertram Turetzky inspired her to sing and play bass at the same time. She also studied with Ray Brown, with whom she made her recording debut, “Introducing Kristin Korb with the Ray Brown Trio,” released in 1996.

As President-Elect of the International Society of Bassists, Korb is artistic director for the upcoming 2013 ISB Convention taking place in Rochester, NY (Eastman School of Music) June 4 through June 8.

Korb is currently touring Sweden and will be in the U.S. in May and again in September and October. She also has upcoming dates set for Spain, Germany and Montreal. Visit www.KristinKorb.com for details.
