    Spotlight On: Kristen Schaeffer -

    Los Angeles pop singer is on her way to becoming the next Sara Bareilles.

    City of Angels singer and songwriter Kristen Schaeffer literally has all the makings of a superstar. She's got an undeniable vocal range that's as expansive as it is enchanting mixed with a stylish aesthetic and just plain cool vibe. Nodding to influences ranging from Sara Vaughn to Sara Bareilles, she manages to infuse pop with a stark and stripped sense of soul that courses through her debut single "Hardest Part."

    Fusing together tender, organic instrumentation with that robust vocal delivery, the track serves as an apropos introduction to Schaeffer, opening up her world. Rife with confidence and charisma, the "Hardest" thing is not listening twice in a row.

    She's gearing up for two upcoming Los Angeles shows. The first is at Genghis Cohen [740 N. Fairfax Ave] May 2 at 8:30pm, while the second is May 14 at Room 5 Lounge [143 N. La Brea Ave] at 8pm. When you see her live, it really drives home just how talented she really is.

    Get ready for her to be the next big voice to break out of L.A.
