On stage, refined songs reveal more than a decade's worth of experience first gained as a young girl growing up in Nova Scotia, Canada, diligently writing, recording, and performing. After moving to Windsor, Ontario in 2010, a musical maturation began. Detroit's radio, record stores, and clubs inspired a change of direction, with her songwriting echoing jazz, blues, bossa nova, and soul. Her latest album Little Sway (2014) reveals a soulful sophistication, hailed by CBC personality Grant Lawrence as "a confident bridge towards sultry soul and classic, smoky jazz." Her song A Damn Shame was placed in the ABC television show Nashville, and her song Pretty Words went viral on Spotify with more than 11 million listens. Crissi is currently at work on her next studio album, to be released in 2018.
