Originally from Ohio, Kristen Embers began playing guitar in March 2003 after her parents bought her first guitar from Ebay. It was a very well maintained Washburn F10S that she still owns and cherishes to this day. Much to her parents’ surprise she instantly knew it was something she was meant to do and has been playing ever since.
As a young teen she religiously listened to “Nights with Alice Cooper” on the radio, trying to learn the songs by ear on the guitar while tuning in. This radio show, built the foundation of most of her knowledge regarding classic rock history, songs and band members. She credits an enormous amount of what she knows about the guitar to her father and the guitar teacher she briefly had as a child (John).
Kristen’s strongest music influences include the stylings of Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Gilmour, Tinsley Ellis, Judas Priest and Queensryche. With a background in finance she aspires to someday be able to turn her passion of music and guitar into a full time career. She is most known to play her Fender Stratocaster which is named “Texas Toast” in honor of the Texas Special Pickups it possesses.
