Okay, letโ€™s get into the Ten questions for Kiirstin Marilyn!

New York City. I wouldn't necessarily call it a hobby. I am an activist and community organizer focused on ending all oppression for humans and non humans alike through street outreach, political lobbying, and my artistry.

I began dancing at a very young age, which led me to musical theater. I was in a touring company of the show "Cabaret" in which I had a cast mate who had brought his guitar on tour with him and was teaching himself to play and writing songs at the same time. Since I had been writing lyrics for a long time, but didn't know what to do with them, I was inspired by him to do the same. I asked for a guitar for my birthday and began immediately writing songs and even performed them live only 4 months into picking up the guitar. At some point someone saw me and told me to join a band. A couple months later, I went on craigslist and found 4 guys in Hoboken looking for a female front person. I wrote and performed with them for what seemed like 2 and a half grueling years until I decided it was time to move onto something new. Two bands later, I decided to "go solo" - something I never actually wanted to do as I love camaraderie of being in a band - and here I am as Kiirstin Marilyn with my first full-length album on the way.

For this latest album definitely Lana Del Rey and Enter Shikari. But overall, Lana Del Rey and Enter Shikari of course, but also Sia, Florence and the Machine, No Doubt, Coheed and Cambria, Rage Against the Machine, Billie Eilish, Garbage, Lily Allen, The Beatles

I'd love to just be making a living making music and not have to worry about having a "survival job." I don't need, nor do I want, fame and fortune. Just time to create music and do the activism that is required of me.

I'd love to perform at Irving Plaza. I don't know that I could tell you why its my favorite NYC venue, but it is; maybe because I've seen so many great shows there so there's a bit of nostalgia for me.

Oof. I'd have to say getting arrested for something really dumb that I will not mention ha.

Probably this upcoming album, There Are No Cats in America. My producer, Adam Tilzer, and I worked really hard on this album for about two years and we really put our all into it. It's certainly the best thing I've ever created to date.

I'd love to collaborate with Enter Shikari. I admire them so much and what they are about.
