Kristen Long has worn many hats over the course of her extensive music career, all of which have influenced her approach to production. Long holds a Bachelor Degree in Vocal Performance from Berklee College of Music; and a Masters Degree in Music Productions from Berklee Online graduating with a 4.0 gpa. She was the recipient of the award for Outstanding Graduate Student of the Class of 2022, as well as the iZotope Award: Honoring Innovation in Music Production. She has held the position of Specialist of Vocal Casting and Music Production with Royal Caribbean Entertainment after music and vocal directing for RCL for over 5 years. She is the creator of The Journey: A New Indie Musical, of which she conceived, composed, arranged and orchestrated, music directed, directed, produced and starred in; and has been an active performer in bands, piano bar, and theater for over 20 years. Long is the driving force behind Minx & Maestro Productions providing project concepts, songs, music production and engineering (recording, mixing, mastering), instrumental and vocal performances, and more. As a storyteller at the core, Long holds the belief that every story has a way it wants to be told, and it is our job as artists, producers, and directors to discover what that way is, and bring the story to life in the most authentic and effective way whatever that may be.
