Kristoff Krane

Kristoff Krane (born Christopher M. Keller on November 2, 1983) is a multi-genre recording artist and instructor from the Twin Cities, MN.

Krane has toured internationally through-out Europe, as well as across the United States with Eyedea & Abilities, Sage Francis, Buck 65 and many others. As a teacher, he has worked in schools and programs across the state, implementing his creative-writing program called, "Wanna Be A Rapper?", as well as performance based and 1 on 1 workshops. Krane resides in Minneapolis with his wife and aside from music, works full-time as a youth advocate at a drop-in center for youth experiencing homelessness. He is currently working on new acoustic project with a release date unknown. He recently joined forces with friends and collaborators, No Bird Sing and Kill The Vultures forming a collective called FtoItoX. His signature/stamp: "I Freestyle Life".
