Kristi Nelson - She Just Wants A Pony

Kristi Nelson is a singer songwriter from Orange County, California and now residing in Bellingham, Washington, who's abilities and sensibilities seem beyond her youthful appearance. A simultaneously deep and whimsical lyricist combined with a guitar style that reminds my of folk/blues/country players like Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb or Bukka White...she don't know it, but she's sung and played right into my heart.

I've been following her on YouTube for a few months now and always get excited when I see she has a new song to share. "Following on YouTube"...that's not the creepy kind of stalking is it? No of course not! Just another of my perfectly healthy long distance/one sided romances.

If I had a therapist, they would say it's OK. I'm pretty sure anyway.

Check her channel out in the hyperlink above, and here's a few teasers for you...some of my favorites.









If you'd like to read more about this great voice and mind adding to the "Things Worthwhile in the World" check her website here!
I hope to hear lots more from this woman. Her guitar, voice and words are the kinds that make your hearts smile!

Thanks Kristi!

Yep, wise beyond years and what a mature voice and all that, for sure. Stone cold fox into the bargain.

Right you are...definitely in candidacy for "Jeffy's Angel" and never-to-be a "Rusty"!

sorry to burst your bubble Jeff~ but~ she states in pretty clear terms she just wants a PONY~ not an old Race Horse ;~j

My bubble's harder to burst than that!

Marco said...

And if Jeffy was a race horse, his name in the Jockey Club Registry would be "Hoof Hearted".


And yes, that is a *real* name of a horse.

Kristi's pretty good, but at YouTube my money's on AcousticKatie24.

Marco: Or "Hoof Noggin".

Thomas: I just checked out AcousticKarie24. Great sound and very heartfelt...there's a lot of great talent out there!
