Kristina grew up in a household with parents of no distinguishable music taste, and so spastically built one over the course of her two decades, beginning somewhere around spunky preteen pop, moving through Broadway musicals, and landing on a healthy mix of piano-pop and indie (shout out to my girls Sara B and Adele). More than anything though, she has a deep love and appreciation for soulful singers and good lyrics. Good lyrics + emotional vocalist = great song. From Worcester, Massachusetts, she thanks the city for exposing her to music of many cultures and plenty of free outdoor concerts. Kristina takes her love of music very seriously and as a result was once almost arrested for stalking State Radio, and their pretty chill. She doesn’t regret it.
