KRISTINA A. BISHOFF
Composer & Arranger
I'm a nerdy mom who loves fantasy and composing music is my heroine's journey.
I first got the idea to be the heroine of my own journey when I composed and produced the original book soundtrack to the New York Times Best Selling Series, Green Rider, by Kristen Britain. This idea expanded into the Green Rider Book Soundtrack & Art Book project, which raised almost $100,000 through the combined efforts of crowdfunding and eBay bidding. The Green Rider fans rallied around the idea of music for their favorite series and we expanded the project to include artwork, accessories, cosplays, events, and other unique items that brought this beloved fantasy world to life.

I also wrote music for another book soundtrack, Kaladin, a book soundtrack that raised over $100,000 on Kickstarter to create music inspired by Brandon Sanderson's famous novel The Way of Kings. I've written music for Salt Lake Pops, Pretty Darn Funny web-series, commercials for businesses, and alternative pop artists including Robyn Cage (under the alias of Kristin Royal.)
I'm best described as creative, whimsical, adventerous, and optimistic and that has defined my musical style. I graduated from BYU earning a B.A. in Commercial Music. The youngest of six students accepted into the Utah Valley University's Film Scoring Internship, I observed the music process for huge blockbuster films. There I received life-changing insight and advice from prolific composers Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, and Chris P. Bacon. (Yes, I was so excited!)
Music is my passion. I love telling stories and adventures through music.
I am forever grateful for the endless support and inspiration from my
family, friends, God, and musical inspirations. You can catch me on Facebook having more adventures and you are welcome to join in the quest!
