Kirsty Lee Akers
Kirsty Lee Akers’ journey as both a recording artist and a person is unique within Australia and around the world. Proud of her indigenous heritage as a woman of the Wonnarua people (Hunter Valley – Australia), she has embraced a global musical culture and now spends her time between Australia and the USA. Whilst she lives in Nashville for a large portion of the year, Australia will always be her spiritual home.
Kirsty’s most successful record to date Burn Baby Burn was released in 2016, giving
Kristy her highest ever ARIA chart position (ARIA #1 Australian Country Album) in addition to
reaching the top of the CMC video charts with the first single “When I Miss You Most”. The album was recorded in Nashville and Sydney during 2015 and the sound is authentically Kirsty. It captures the fusion of her US future and her Australian roots.
