The Night Kristen Leu Came Back

18839206_10155173987366125_5746194349352287684_nOn Thursday June 1st, Brian Erickson was joined on stage by former Paper Jet Kristen Leu for the first time in seven years! Brian was tapped to lead an ensemble of area musicians in a front-to-back performance of The Beatles’ iconic Sgt Pepper album in honor of its 50th Anniversary. Leu joined the group on piano and vocals.

Leu was a member of The Paper Jets from 2009 – 2010, joining the group shortly after their first album Face Forward came out. She appears on the band’s now out-of-print Bored In Town concert film but never made it onto a studio recording.
