American Idol finalist Kristen McNamara to rock Island Dogs

From the American Idol finalist stage to opening for the likes of Lonestar, Kenny Chesney and Winona Judd, Kristen McNamara--KMAC--is bringing her eclectic pop/adult contemporary/Country mix to the Island Dogs stage December 3 and 17 at 8 p.m.

It's a fitting spot for the artist who's been compared to Stevie Nicks; KMAC, a prolific songwriter, drove to Key West from California in 2010 to write the song, Duval Street. She's now made Mile 0 her home.

This free-spirited northern California farmgirl left the ranch at 16, taking her four-octave range to top finalist spots in a slew of national competitions, including CBS' Star Search, USA's Nashville Star, and FOX's American Idol, and performing at Disney's Country Tonite. She recently did guide vocal work for Cher in the movie Burlesque and has spent several years in Nashville, holding underground singer/songwriter nights.

With five albums under her belt and over 10,000 record sales from the back of her car, McNamara is now working with New York production team, Peter Macchia and David Andronico, and traveling wherever inspiration, music and art take her and her teddy bear Ophelia.

Look out for more performances by KMAC at Island Dogs in the coming months.
