Kristeen Young is an American singer-songwriter and pianist. Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Young began playing piano as a teenager and later attended an art school. She has released seven studio albums. Young has also sung with several artists including David Bowie and Morrissey. She also recorded with producer Tony Visconti and musician Dave Grohl.

In 1997, she released her debut album Meet Miss Young and Her All Boy Band. In the early 2000s, she began working with Tony Visconti on Breasticles. Issued in 2003, Breasticles featured a duet with David Bowie, "Saviour". On 2004's X, the opening number "No Other God" was a duet with Brian Molko of Placebo.

Besides her own work, she also featured on other artists' records. She appeared on David Bowie's Heathen in 2002 and she provided the operatic vocals in Morrissey's single "That's How People Grow Up" in 2008. In 2009, Young sang vocals on an alternate version of "New Kid" by Monokino.

In May 2014, Young released her seventh album The Knife Shift: it was recorded with Dave Grohl who played various instruments on it, including drums, piano, guitars and bass

experimental rock reveal the universals of the human experience.

varied influences culled from the world of ‘alternative’ and 'pop' music
such as 30 Seconds To Mars, Tegan and Sara, Heart, Linkin Park, and Taylor
Swift, it’s no wonder that these audiences have been left wanting more.

“Growing up, we both really gravitated towards songs written from the
