// Seeking Representation
Songwriter Kristy Cepielik, known as Korpus Kristy, has been on UK radio, KISS FM and an affiliated station in Georgia.
Korpus Kristy & the Skinwalkers are Los Angeles musicians with an unending original set list. Songwriter Kristy Cepielik is the band's front woman and her music is considered Americana, hinging on rock and traditional country from the 1970's era. With two self produced albums High Maintenance Girl and The Hookah Tale, recently released in late 2016, Cepielik continues to churn out material as though it was pouring from a fountain. She will be releasing her third album, Playing Possum in 2018.
Gary Putman of Dread Zeppelin is a constant with Cepielik. They have been playing live and in the studio together for over a decade. He brings a modern edge to the music with his eight string guitar. Putman's duet on Golden Ring is just what is needed in making a classic song sound so fresh, while keeping its integrity.
Cepielik is seeking representation, focused on moving past the corridor of major companies that have paid attention to her music for national commercials. The product and work ethic is there. The package needs to be delieverd into the right hands with the right team behind her.
