Giving Women a Voice

Seven years into her music career, Courtney Krause is finally becoming a solid player in the Des Moines music community. She performs as a solo act, in groups with two or three other musicians, and in her own sextet. As one of the Iowa Artists to Watch in 2018, Krause has been busy playing shows both in and around Des Moines. From solo performances in Ames, to full band performances in Des Moines, Krause hopes her success will help break the stereotype that women in music are just pretty faces and big personalities.
