                unleashing cathartic melodies, Krista’s emotionally raw lyrics are brought to life by a
                blend of hard-edged rock, street-wise rap and engaging pop. The dynamic, genre-            Tags
                defying sound reflects the diversity of Krista’s musical influences, which range from      Krista, Missi
                escapist rock (Evanescence and Linkin Park) to early female MCs (Salt-n-Pepa,              Insanity, Tak

                “This is my debut album and I want to show everybody who I am, which is someone            Paramore

                with a lot of different sides,” Krista says. “The album is about taking it back to where
                I’m from – the whole collage of living in Brooklyn. But it’s also about what art and
                writing and music mean to me. How I want to take back from my life what has been
                taken from me.”

                One of J Records’ most promising young talents, Krista piqued audiences’ interests
                with her breakout performances at the Lollapalooza and Bamboozle festivals and X
                Games in 2008.

                Seventeen Magazine named Krista a break out act for 2009

                ArtistDIRECT.com describes Krista as “razor sharp edge honed on hard rock
                melodies and quick, incisive raps. She can carry a chorus to the sky and back, but
                she can also spit fiery rhymes that could rattle the hood to its very core”.

                Don’t miss your chance to catch this incredible new talent this summer.
