Kristen Elise Lawrence (born March 2, 1976) is an American organist, composer, and vocalist who writes, produces, records, and performs her music based on Halloween history. She graduated from Brigham Young University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Music in organ performance and pedagogy.[1]

In 2009, Lawrence released her album Broom With a View, a 13-track of songs celebrating Halloween.[1] In addition to her original compositions, Lawrence researches traditional folk songs and arranges them for organ. The songs are largely based on the older roots of Halloween traditions, from pagan ceremonies to the Christian traditions that eventually melded with them.[2]
