Christa Couture

Another gem, discovered through MySpace.

Couture was born with music in her blood. Her mother sang in sixties folk trio and her father performed ceremonial music his whole life. Christa was writing songs before she could write the alphabet and spent her childhood in choirs and her teens performing and studying musical theatre. At 21, she left Edmonton for Vancouver where she picked up a guitar for the first time. In 2002 Couture released her EP "Starter" and moved to England to learn the trade of singing in smoky pubs. A year later, overflowing with inspiration, she returned to Canada to record again. She released her debut album "Fell Out of Oz", she confronts and contemplates surviving cancer, kissing boys, kissing girls and abortion. She spins heartache, fear and hope into a passionate, compelling tapestry of music and lyrics. "The Wedding Singer & The Undertaker" is Couture’s second full-length album, released May 20th, 2008.
