Two of the songs from her recent debut EP "Wild Woman" were finalists in the International Acoustic Music Awards (IAMA) (“Muddy River” for Best folk/Americana/Roots and “Stuck in Your Head” for Best Female Artist) and “Stuck in Your Head” was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) in the Teen category.
"CALISTA GARCIA will be in our popular culture, ever bigger in the years to come. Bringing the fundamental pop awareness in her songs, with the palpable indie-folk/Americana goodness that relates to us all. ‘Stuck In Your Head’ is indicative of many of the fab traditions of past greats within the 70’s psyche-pop genre. With Calista’s vocal range and delightful whimsy, the song pops out like primary colors of the rainbow and just makes thing fun. The talented songwriter’s journey has just begun to bloom as she steps steadfastly into the exciting future, she’s created.”
