Gloria Steinem named Kristin “a one-woman argument against the notion that the women’s movement doesn’t have a sense of humor.”
Kristin Lems is a versatile composer, songwriter, folksinger and performing artist from Evanston, Illinois. As a teenager, Kristin picked up the guitar and wholeheartedly raised her voice as part of the movement to make a better world. Kristin brought her upbeat musical stage presence to nationwide events for the ERA and women’s rights, safe energy, peace, racial equality, and other pressing causes.
Kristin Lems has shared the stage with two First Ladies, Maya Angelou, Captain Jacques Cousteau, Gloria Steinem, Helen Caldicott and Alan Alda, and performed a full song on Nightline. Musicians include Pete Seeger, Malvina Reynolds, Holly Near, Dana Fogelber, Koko Taylor, Peter, Paul and Mary, the BoDeans, and many others.
Kristin has been the recipient of numerous awards. Most recently, an award, the Kristin Lems Social Change through Music Aware, was created by the Women in the Arts Foundation for the 40th National Women’s Music Festival, and Kristin received the first award.
