Join Michael Litten "The Last DJ" for an in-depth conversation.Featuring a variety of songs.
While Kristin Tinsley’s range of musical taste is extensive, a seminal moment occurred when she first watched and listened to Fleetwood Mac’s “The Dance.” Stevie Nicks distinctive voice resonated and called out to her. And, she took to heart the advice Tom Petty gave to Stevie when she was recording “Trouble in Shangri-La,” which became the lyrics to her song “That Made Me Stronger,” “…Will you write this for me He says no, you write your songs yourself That made me stronger It made me hold on to me…,” That strength lead Kristin to know she has the voice and talent to lead a Stevie Nicks tribute band, Stand Back in recognition to her all-time favorite musician.

I began singing from the age of four years old, but proceeded to pursue athletics instead. I played softball during elementary school and then took up cheerleading in middle school. Cheerleading continued through my freshman year in high school, where I was a member of both the Junior Varsity football cheerleading squad and the Varsity competition squad.
Becoming extremely disenchanted with the affair, I decided to tryout for the volleyball team. I was a member of the Varsity team during my sophomore, junior, and senior year. Over the three years, I received honorable mention (sophomore), first team all-county (junior, senior), team MVP (junior, senior), player of the year (senior), and was a member of the Georgia All-Star volleyball team (senior).
While in between high school seasons, I participated in the Junior Olympic Volleyball program. My senior year ended with me receiving a volleyball scholarship to Valdosta State University. I started as a defense specialist as a freshman. After the 2001 season, I moved back to Atlanta and worked.
In July of 2002, I decided to pick up the guitar. In August, I went to Georgia Southern University and played volleyball there for two years. Getting no where with my music, I decided to move back to Atlanta and try to do something. Once I got back, I started playing at local open mic venues and began to receive offers for shows. In 2005, I played my first solo show and have been playing frequently since then.
Over the years, I have written several songs and in November of 2005, I decided to professionally record a few of them. After almost a year, the project was finally completed.
Currently, I play around town 3-4 nights a week. The shows consist of either solo, duo, or band gigs. A new project is in the works so new music will be available soon!
