Anyway sometime soon we have to hang out with some new cool friends to us, with "old cool friends" love you two, lisa

Cool site!

Stephanie Wilke - 10.02.07 @ 12:03am
Hi again Kristi -
Again hoping I can catch you at your next RI/MA venue & will definitely make it a point to say hello and personally congratulate you on a wonderful success!

kristi - 7.06.07 @ 10:14pm
Hey Liz! Thanks so much! Congrats on the YouTube video! I'll hope to see you at a show soon! Be Peace, Kristi

kristi - 7.06.07 @ 10:09pm
Stephanie, THANK YOU. I remember singing Summertime for Mr. St. Germain. And I do hope you re-introduce yourself to me when you get to a show. I felt so alone during high school that it really touches my heart that you were touched by my singing back then. Take really good care! - kristi

Liz Abbott - 6.19.07 @ 3:46am
Hi, Kristi! I'm finally online! I 1st heard you in Buffalo, I think in 2001! Wow! You were FANTASTIC then, & have come an amazingly long way since. I am thrilled, & proud of U. I still love yer older songs, but am loving the 1 on Neil Y's site!Can't wait 2 hear Raven. I once lived in Alaska & I loved being around the Ravens. Magical. I have a video on youtube as of late!! I'm so lo-tech, it's kinda a big deal 4 me! :) I'll send it 2U. Or you can go2 youtube & search Liz Abbott. There R 4 of them, all from my CD Release Party last May. I hope 2 hear U live again soon! Love, Liz

Stephanie (Taratuta) Wilke - 6.12.07 @ 11:16pm
Kristi - Not sure if you remember me from high school (I used to live right behind the Silvias!), but I was in Chorus with you - I was a Sr. & you were a Jr. (I believe) and Mr. St. Germain had you sing "Summertime" from Porgy & Bess solo, during class, and you BLEW ME AWAY. I was truly in awe of you & of course, jealous, because I believe I am tone deaf. Ha, ha, ha. I had never heard someone belt out a beautiful sound with what seemed little effort & filled with enjoyment. I'm very proud to say that I stood up in front of local N.S. families and sang at the same "venue" as you, and at the success that you have become. Your voice is still unbelievabably beautiful and tremendous and I wish you only THE BEST.
Hope that I am able to see an upcoming RI or MA show.

Alex - 6.10.07 @ 6:20am
Thank You

kristi - 3.04.07 @ 3:44am
I do totally remember you and your sister, Ashley! I really enjoyed teaching you! I hope you are still playing the piano and singing! You were really good at it! I'm so happy you found my website and that you've been enjoying my songs! Thanks so much for signing the guestbook! Be your best!

Ashley Brown - 2.28.07 @ 3:08am
Hey Kristi! I really hope you remember me and my sister. You used to teach us piano and voice. I bought some of your songs recently and it took me back to when you would play "Give" for me! I hope all is well! By the looks of it, things are good! Congratulations!

Noah - 2.14.07 @ 7:45pm
Hey what's up. My best friend Nina came out of the closet when she heard your story. I love your music. You're blessed with the voice of a Siren.

Leslie Piken - 2.08.07 @ 2:21am
You think because you have a "New england" accent that it gives you an excuse to have such a foul mouth? You punk ass mofo. I love your gutter mouth. :) Ravendiva- this trip to fame has been such a lovely stroll ;) Wanted to remind you how much I'm enjoying working with you!

Kim Leadford - 11.26.06 @ 2:11pm
Excuse me, ma'am...can you tell me the difference between a raven and a crow? i always get so confused.

kristi - 7.18.06 @ 8:29am
yep...sure did! Prince is my favorite! and i love house concerts. just gotta make sure there's enough room for the keyboard and maybe some of my band... :) we are soooooo happy to have you 'on board,' Leslie! wahooooooo! -kristi

leslie piken - 7.18.06 @ 1:49am
You seriously played Prince at a house concert one time? What would I have to do to get you to do a concert in my house where you'd do Prince? LOL that would kick some ass! _Leslie PS. Good to be 'on board' Kristi- always glad to help and continue/share your wonderful music

Hi Johana! Thanks for checking in! Are you still on my mailing list? I was in CA in June. I've been on KPFA lately and had a big turnout at my show as a result. It was fabulous! I don't know when I'll be out there next, but I'm hoping sometime in the spring. love and blesses!

kristi - 7.06.05 @ 11:22pm
hey zeke! thanks so much! it was sooooooo fun and such a huge honor to get to play 8 of my songs at kpfa's gorgeous studio on their gorgeous Yamaha grand! they treated me like a star and interviewed me and even recorded me saying things like, "Hi. My name is Kristi Martel and you're listening to KPFA." could hear that any ole time! they haven't yet told me when it will air. and i haven't heard it yet! but Lewis Sawyer, who DJs the early morning Tuesday program, will know when they will air it, once they decide. and you can always call him to request tunes. he has been playing my songs for years now! he came to the sf show june 11th too! it was fantastic to meet him!
thanks!!! be well!

zeke - 7.04.05 @ 9:41pm

Great Site!!

kristi - 1.24.05 @ 6:58pm
Hey Rachael! Thanks for checking out my site and signing this here guestbook. I'm glad you like the site! Hopefully it will be earlier than never that you can afford a CD! But in the meantime, you can hear clips of songs on this here site (there's a funny one of me and Kevin on the tour diary page, the frontpage has a sample from my newest cd, the bound single page has samples of my song bound...). You can also go to and hear samples from all three of my cds. You can also purchase single songs from two of my CDs at digital distribution places like AppleiTunes! and hey! there is a bootleg page (attached to my recordings page on this site), where you can trade for tapes of live shows! So there are some cheap and free ways to hear more of my music!!!

and hey Angie! Thanks for stopping by and saying HI!

hot chocolate and fire places, km

Rachael - 1.22.05 @ 1:42am
Hi! It's Rachael from Grumpy's. Just wanted to say hi, your website is really cool, and next time I can afford it (which will be the 32nd of never) I definately will check out some of your CDs... hope to see you again soon!

kristi - 10.19.04 @ 11:59pm
thank you, Nestea. where did you hear my song, Even Free? i'm honored to hear how you could relate. Namaste, km

Nestea - 10.17.04 @ 3:51pm

Your music is inspiring. The words just flow out of your mouth like the angels from heaven. I too can relate. I myself, am a nappy haired child. Your song touched me. Deep Down. Wow.

kristi - 10.12.04 @ 8:43pm
thanks, Garrett! it's great to hear from you. i miss Arizona and touring too! i have been busy working on being HERE in RI, so i havne't been touring as extensively recently. i hope beyond hope that i will be able to tour more thoroughly in 2005 (including getting to Tucson - though it might take until October). i will hopefully see you then! keep creating! i'm so happy to be a part of your inspiration! hove and lugs, km

Garrett Sipe Tucson, AZ - 10.12.04 @ 7:09pm
I have missed your music and you so much. Arizona misses you and I can't express it in words how much you and your music still mean to me. If you get a chance out of your so busy schedual it would be great to hear from you. I recently moved and I've noticed that it's been hard to keep in touch with those that have been a great inspiration. I would just like to say thanks and much love to you.

Love Always,

kristi - 10.06.04 @ 11:14pm
awe, you all are gonna make me cry! thanks SO much for all the praises. muah! i am so happy to hear i have touched your hearts with my music. it's interesting to think about my evolution from brave enough to The Mule because i wrote most of the songs that are on The Mule BEFORE i recorded brave enough, i just knew they weren't meant for that album. just interesting to think about how circular or spiraling evolution is. keep on listening with open hearts and speaking your truth, y'all. thanks for writing. and keep spreading the word about my music. oh and hey, feel free to join the discussion list... many blesses, km

Tabatha - 10.06.04 @ 2:06pm
Saw you at the Women's Gathering in Coventry. Thank you soooo much for sharing your voice with us. What a red-haired goddess you are and then you open your mouth and more beauty just comes dancing out. Just wanted to say thank you!

Sarah - 10.04.04 @ 3:19pm

kristi - 9.28.04 @ 11:03pm

Brisk - 9.28.04 @ 8:36pm
Your performance on "Center Stage" was so intense and I could really relate. I too know small nappy haired children. Touching.

thorn - 9.27.04 @ 8:35am
hey kristi, i saw you perform lastnite with kelliana and i was thinking wow you take a backseat to nobody. that was first id ever heard of you and i was quite impressed. i cant wait to get your cds and see you again in person. thorn

Terrie Kind - 9.27.04 @ 8:14am
Hi Kristi!
Thanks for the info on your performances. I haven't been able to attend yet but I'm planning to in October and I am planning on watching you on 9/28 if I can get the station you're on. I have DirectTV not cable. See you Thursday in class. Terrie

Jolly Thompson - 9.23.04 @ 6:18pm
Hi Kristi, it's been a looong time since I wrote.I'm sorry to hear about what happened last year. I feel so clumsy. It's hard to find the right words. Sending you a big hug across the ocean. Just listened to songs from your new album. They are beautiful!Ordered several copies and going to spread them around amongst my friends this side of the ocean. Take care.And good luck. Lots of love. Jolly (the Czech photographer from Bard..)

kristi - 9.09.04 @ 12:24am
hey ezekiel, try it again. i changed it on 8/28/04 so it doesn't start automatically. and i guess the stop buttons really look likst play buttons, but when you press them, it stops the sound. there has always been a play/pause/stop button on all the sound files on the site. there's two sound files on the bound page too. so...i think you'll be all set now. hope so! let me know!

kristi - 9.09.04 @ 12:22am
hi Amy! thanks for signing the guestbook! i'm so glad you enjoy my newsletters and tour diary. :) -km

ezekiel - 9.06.04 @ 3:06pm
hello thx for responding. i don't see stop buttons. pause button on the home page works OK but the tourdates page downloads 32 MB automatically & there's no pause or stop button--that's a big file to force on unsuspecting visitors. thx for listening.

Amy - 8.31.04 @ 8:12pm
Aloha from Kauai! Keep up the good work. I enjoy reading about all your adventures and inspirations.

kristi - 8.28.04 @ 10:49pm
oh hey, hi, ezekiel. so sorry you're having trouble! i built those little stop buttons into the website so you could stop the sound from playing automatically... could you try that out, and let me know if it works for you? i have a very slow modem and figured if it could work for my clunky modem it could work for anybody's, but maybe i was wrong. just press the stop button while the page is still loading and it should be fine... if it's not, let me know! i'd certainly like to change it if it's not working! thanks for the feedback! - km

ezekiel - 8.28.04 @ 2:31pm
hello yr site keeps crashing my browser w/ all the big files. please change it so the files don't play automatically!

Kristi Martel - 7.31.04 @ 12:45am
Johanagirl, you rock! thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers. you know i need all the help i can get! you still in school? you still singing? you still writing??? blessings to you dear one. kristi

Johana Barahona - 7.28.04 @ 1:20am
Hey Kristi, It is so great to read about the great things you continue to accomplish. I always think about you and hope you will be back in the bay area soon. I wish you the best always, and it is wonderful to hear that you are getting by gracefully. Much love. Johana Barahona

Kristi Martel - 6.18.04 @ 11:12pm
Rick! You rock!!! I will never forget you left coast folks ever. But all the transitions I've recently been through (losing Littlebird and moving 3,000 miles and starting over) have slowed me down. I'm not sure how long it will take til I make it out west. But it WILL happen! I promise!!! And you will definitely hear about it! :) -km

RJH - 6.18.04 @ 5:00am
Had to drop by and say 'hi from sandy-cruz! I'm planning to save my pennies to purchase the Mule ASAP!!!

I hope you won't forget us "left coast" folks now!! :)

Rick H

Kristi - 6.01.04 @ 11:54am
hey, Ronnie! you rock! yeah, i can't wait to meet Rachel and hear her live! do tell us all what you think of my new CD, The Mule, when you do get it! blesses, kristi

Ronnie Robinson - 6.01.04 @ 4:51am
Hey Kristi it's Ronnie in CA! I talked to Rachael a while back and she said that she has gotten your stuff and that Chloe Jo at the Atlanta office would be in touch. She is a tad busy right now, as a new CD is almost due out! Woohoo! I gotten get your new one though! I can't wait to hear "Aged". Anyway, sending my love!
