Biography

Irish singer/songwriters and recording artists Keith and Kristyn Getty are among the preeminent modern hymn composers of this generation. Best known for “In Christ Alone," the world-renowned hymn has been recorded by numerous artists over the past decade—including Owl City, Natalie Grant and Newsboys—and is a classic sung in churches around the globe. Writers of an acclaimed repertoire of 21st century hymns revered both for their theologically astute lyrics and universally beloved melodies, the couple’s popular U.S. recordings include "In Christ Alone," "Awaken The Dawn" and "Joy – An Irish Christmas." Keith & Kristyn have shared their music at Franklin Graham crusades, the GMA Dove Awards, The Third Lausanne Conference on World Evangelization, as well as feature performances at London’s Royal Albert Hall and the legendary Grand Ole Opry, among many other noted platforms.

Along with their band—an ensemble of some of the top names in Irish and American folk music—Keith and Kristyn have toured extensively in both America and the Celtic Islands this year. Additionally, their annual Joy – An Irish Christmas Tour, which included a sell out performance at Nashville’s prestigious Schermerhorn Symphony Center in 2011, has become a highlight of the holiday season for audiences around the country and is slated to stop in 20 stateside cities later this year.

Hailing from Northern Ireland, the couple now reside in Nashville with their daughter Eliza Joy.

Keith and Kristyn’s highly-anticipated Hymns for the Christian Life is a thematically-focused original collection showcasing Irish melodies as well as American bluegrass and country music influences. Inspired by both the spiritual and musical community in which the couple has been immersed since relocating to Nashville, Keith and Kristyn’s most personal album to date explores such themes as work, family, money and social action.

"In commemoration of [Ricky Skagg's] 30th anniversary at the Grand Ole Opry this spring, he asked Kristyn and Alison Krauss to sing ‘In Christ Alone’ with him as a finale that night. Being able to share the stage with him for such an occasion was an incredible experience. "
