Born in Bournemouth, Krista Green is a singer-songwriter who has been performing for over twelve years.
Before launching her career, Krista discovered her love for being on stage, as a ballet, tap and modern dancer, and within pantomimes from the age of eight to eighteen. Learning the drums at fifteen, she treasured playing with her brother’s rock ’n’ roll band and was gifted a guitar for her eighteenth birthday. Whilst teaching herself to play the guitar, she began writing songs and as her confidence grew, she found out that singing was exactly what she wanted to do as a career. Krista went on to study performing arts at Brockenhurst College and enjoyed a variety of acting, theatre and entertainment jobs across England as well as song writing, busking and playing gigs and weddings for many years.
In 2011, she won the 'Bournemouth Unplugged' competition whilst up against tremendous talent, with a voice described as ‘sunshine’, and a sound compared to the likes of KT Tunstall, Katie Melua and Jack Johnson. Soon after, her debut album ‘Moments With The Universe’ was released in May 2012.
As well as being an accomplished solo musician, Krista occasionally played within a band, notably performing with ‘Krista Green & The Bees’ around Bournemouth for the last two years and at present. One of their most memorable performances was sharing the same stage as Nizlopi, supporting them at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival in 2014. In the same year, she released another album titled ‘Stepping Stones’.
By 2015 Krista had released three albums, all of which are available on iTunes, and she was no stranger to playing live performances and regularly entertaining new crowds.
As a solo artist, Krista currently has a huge repertoire of both popular covers and original material which spans from gentle, chilled vibes to upbeat, catchy tunes; instilled by her mother's love for The Beatles whilst growing up and a love for the same fun 'summertime vibe'. Her covers range from the likes of Vance Joy, Bob Marley and The Fratellis through to Paolo Nutini, Ed Sheeran and George Ezra, showcasing her talent in singing an array of genres.
No matter if it’s an up-tempo or a heartfelt track, her original material is always lyrically poetic. During her time as a busker over the years, she met a man called Barry who sold the Big Issue and they became good friends. His sudden passing led her to write ‘Barry’s Song’, a particularly meaningful song from her album ‘Krista Green: Live’. Krista believes that song writing is like keeping a diary and gives you the chance to pour out your emotions in a creative way.
Her talent doesn’t just stop with music and dancing. Krista holds a black belt in Taekwondo as well as having the ability to draw and design all of the artwork for her albums. She currently lives in Bournemouth, teaching music, nannying and focusing on her own music.
Krista Green is the first artist to be signed with Fuzzy Music Records where she plans to produce 2 new singles and perform live across the country, with an aim to record another album.
