Cris Conerty, Award-Winning Singer Songwriter

by Cris Conerty
(Spokane, WA USA)


"Music has been my playmate, my lover, and my crying towel," – a statement attributed to singer Buffy Sainte-Marie, with which I wholeheartedly agree.

Since joining the Nashville Songwriter’s Association and traveling to Nashville, Tennessee for the first time in April 2009, I have devoted myself to professional songwriting, currently primarily in the country genre. My songs are inspired by my own life experiences as well as stories I hear of other people’s challenges and victories.

I appreciate and draw inspiration from virtually all genres of music. I work nearly every day creating new music, and honing my songwriting craft.

Here’s To Sorrow, released January 2012, is my debut album of twelve life-inspired original country tunes featuring close harmonies, heart-and-soul lead vocals, and an array of traditional instruments that brings to life my story of love lost and the unexpected “happily ever after” I was lucky enough to get. Three songd have received songwriting honors in various contests.

I am the mother of five children and grandmother of five, and I currently live in Eastern Washington in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband, youngest son, and golden retriever.
