Kristine W gives Seattle everything she's got

& by Adam Romano - Special to the SGN

'Everything That I Got,' Kristine W's first single from her New & Number Ones dance album, speaks to anyone who has had to overcome adversity.

'The song sums up how people are feeling today,' explains the celebrated dance artist, who will perform the track and other hits at the Victory Party this Saturday. 'It's about persevering - not giving up. We are all working everything that we have to make a dollar in this challenging economy.'

The Washington state native (a former Miss Washington) has recorded 16 number-one Billboard dance hits and currently ties Mariah Carey for most consecutive Billboard Club Play number ones. Still, she admits the past few years have been some of the most difficult of her career. 'It is the toughest time in history for anyone trying to make it in the recording business,' she says. 'There are few brick-and-mortar music retailers left and half as many dance clubs as there were 10 years ago.

'To be a recording artist today requires that a performer wear multiple hats. He or she must be the manager, the marketing exec, the band leader, the video producer & all with no financial support system other than what is in his or her own wallet. Pretty trying times for performers.'

One of the most powerful lyrics Kristine sings in 'Everything That I Got' is 'I still got my pride.'

'Most people do not understand the commitment and dedication I have to my music,' she continues. 'I have confidence in what I'm contributing to the world. 'Everything That I Got' is my story as well as anyone who has ever strived for greatness in any field of work.'

Kristine W performs at the Victory Party at Neumos in Seattle on Saturday, November 3 (proceeds benefit the Approve R-74 campaign). Her album, New & Number Ones, featuring the hit single 'Everything That I Got,' is on iTunes now. For more information, visit kristinew.com. Tickets for the Victory Party are available at Moe Bar or www.neumos.com.
