It was quite the fun-filled evening in the ol' Cybertoxic Lounge as the lovely Ms. Kristin Tinsley came by to tease torment talk with Eric Jefferson. She was an entertaining and personable guest and we were honored to have her with us. We were even more impressed with how easily she put Eric in his place, where he belongs. Nice goin', KT. Check out the photos here!
In addition, Kristin treated us to two live songs as well as several tracks from her debut album, Cry Out to the Night, which we're proud to say we're playing quite a bit. In fact, we believe that we were the first station to add it to a playlist! We weren't the only ones playing it for long, however, nor should we have been. The music is too good for that. You can check it out and pick up a copy for yourself right here. Kristin's songs pay homage to '70s classic-rock bands such as Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles, Tom Petty, and other artists who, way back when, created melody-driven and memorable music that resonated with fans of many genres and age groups. As Kristin says, "I try to take those influences that make their music special to me and blend it with trends that are popular today." We don't know much about current trends here at HounddogRadio (one look at the clothes in our closets would tell you that), but we do know good tunes. Kristin delivers that and more, and she's quickly becoming quite a musical force around the Atlanta area, and soon beyond.
Kristin even stuck around after the interview and co-hosted two hours of programming with Frank (hmmm, after two hours with Eric, then two more with Frank, we think the girl needs to start choosing her company a little more wisely). This lady has a very bright future ahead of her, and she's certainly welcome in the new Doghouse any time she wants.

Tinsley turns singing into professional career
The 23-year-old Kristin Tinsley, born and raised in Georgia, began singing at the age of 4 and continued singing throughout elementary school. In 1998, her family moved to Woodstock where she graduated from Etowah High School. While in college, Tinsley decided to pick up guitar for the first time and began focusing on music during the summer of 2002.
She continued to practice and write during her two years at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, and in June 2004, she moved back to Woodstock and enrolled at Kennesaw State University.
Tinsley then began playing at local â€˜open micâ€™ venues and those performances led to offers for her own shows.
Her first solo show was in January 2005, and since then Tinsley has been plying her own shows in the metro Atlanta area and also hosts for Open Mic Atlanta (www.openmicatlanta.com).
In November 2005, Tinsley began recording her first solo CD. With the help of some friends, she has completed an original 10-song album that she wrote, produced and played guitar.
Tinsley will perform at the Mountain Moonshine Festival at the Dogs and Hogs stage on Sunday, Oct. 29 from 2-2:45 p.m.
