Krissy Nordhoff is a Grammy® nominated and Dove Award® winning professional songwriter and author.
A Michigan native, Krissy grew up in a Christian home, learning a love for church music from her pianist grandmother. That love carried through the years as she attended Anderson University, studying songwriting with the legendary Gloria Gaither and later as Krissy taught piano and performed as an indie artist.
Realizing that her dreams were shifting away from travel and performing as she and her husband, Eric, welcomed young children, Krissy began to focus on songwriting. She poured her own tears and triumphs into songs birthed out of an ever-deepening relationship with God through each season of life. Along the way, she garnered three Dove Award nominations for her efforts and won a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year for the beloved anthem “Your Great Name,” inspired by her own health battle and God’s healing. She was most recently nominated for a Grammy® Award for her song “Famous For (I Believe)". Her songs have been recorded by a variety of artists including Natalie Grant, Tauren Wells, Jenn Johnson (Bethel Music), Mandisa, Darlene Zschech, David and Nicole Binion, Travis Cottrell, Prestonwood Worship, Corey Voss, Dustin Smith, Phillips, Craig & Dean, and many others.
Passionate about training and encouraging the next generation of worship songwriters, Krissy mentors, teaches and creates resources at WritingWorship.co. She recently penned a book, Writing Worship: How To Craft Heartfelt Songs for the Church that offers spiritual and practical insights for aspiring songwriters and worship teams that want to write original songs for their church congregations.
Krissy, Eric, and their three children live in the suburbs of Nashville, TN.
