Based out of Austin, TX with roots in multiple genres, Cristina is a solo artist in EDM as well as an acoustic singer-songwriter for sibling project Suther & Brista.
Music has been the ever-pulling current underlining decisions and experiences for all of Cristina’s life. At the age of six, Cristina played piano and studied classical piano sonatas in music theory. When she turned 13, she started training professionally in jazz, classical, musical theater, and gospel singing.
By age 16, Cristina had picked up the guitar while studying at Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, and began singing with a touring gospel choir. She continued her studies in Pittsburgh, PA at Carnegie Melon University combining her passion for singing and performance in Musical Theater. Today, Cristina’s breadth in musical training allows her to move like a chameleon across genres, singing everything from folk, to funk and what she is most known for: EDM.
She met Chad Cisneros in 2007 and so began this journey. As the main vocalist for Tritonal, Cristina’s ethereal vocals played an instrumental role in bringing the trio’s melodic, yet progressive trance to the forefront of the dance music scene.
Cristina performed with Tritonal in 3 continents and headlined at the Palms in Las Vegas over the course of 3 years. This culminated with a home-coming show at Austin’s Emo’s East in December 2012 where Cristina sang to a sold-out crowd of nearly 2000 people.
Since then, Cristina has branched out into other forms of EDM, including trap, drum & bass, and ambient downtempo. She released her first trap tune, One Thing, with Psymbionic which went big on Bassnectar’s ‘Into The Sun’ mixtape in the summer of 2015. She also collaborated with Illenium and Said The Sky on the melodic dubstep tune ‘Painted White”.
Cristina continues to find new opportunities to grow as an artist in 2016, collaborating with old and new friends alike. Her album, “All I Need” dropped in March with Gravitas Recordings and featured 7 new original collaborations with producers including Psymbionic, The Digital Connection, Zuart, Michael Teixeira and new comers Gold VHS and 9th Leap. She worked with Saad Ayub, a rising star in Trance, during the spring of 2016 to release their single “Daylight”. Capping off 2016 with the talented Au5, Cristina released a 4 track EP titled “Freefall”, which will continue to have activity into 2017 through remixes and acoustic versions of the songs.
