About the Title:
I wrote all these songs when I was in college at the University of Southern California. It was towards the end of my senior year when we were recording the album. I named it “Bachelor of Apathy” as a mockery of the Bachelor’s degree I had been working at for four years. It seemed to tie all the songs together and sum up how I felt about the world of academia at that time in my life.

Word from the press:

“Her vocals recall such modern luminaries as the jazz diva Diana Krall, the same DIY-itiveness and alterna-folk of Ani DiFranco and the sultry swing of Save Ferris’ Monique Powell. Kristy’s the Rickie Lee Jones of the 20somethings. If that’s not a scorching hot concoction, I’m stumped as to what is.”
–Pot Pourri and Roses, Los Angeles, CA

Words from the People:

“I bought this album from Kristy in 1998 and after hearing the album once straight-through, I was hooked. Every song is different showing her talent and versatility of styles. It's a must get. There's nothing that I can say about this album that isn't praiseworthy.”
-Matt Fleishman, Los Angeles, CA
