Raised in a Middle Eastern household, Krista developed an ear for dynamic vocals and appealing melodies. As soon as she discovered songwriting, Krista began taking music more seriously. At age 14, she joined a band with close friends with whom she fostered her art and performed countless gigs for five years. Lead singer, keyboardist, and cajon player of the group, Krista performed at notable venues, such as the Troubadour and the Viper Room. Meanwhile, at Huntington Beach High School, Krista was a part of the Music Media & Entertainment Technology program of the Academy for the Performing Arts (APA MMET) through which she cultivated her songwriting and performing skills, and discovered her interest in production.
In June of 2016, Krista released her debut EP, "Bittersweet," which she wrote and co-produced. The following November, she collaborated with producer Arc North to create "Meant To Be," a single she both sang and co-wrote. Krista continues to write for herself and other artists, lend her voice to collaborations, and play her own shows. Undeniably soulful, her dynamic sound represents a Krista Marina-type style that sets her apart from the rest.
