Christa Vi is an Australian / German Singer Songwriter, based in East London. She combines her folky, storytelling songwriting style with eclectic instrumentation, electronic elements and emotive vocals.
Inspired to sing and write music by life's hard knocks, long plane journeys, London's noise pollution, overheard snippets of conversation, the inner pain and beauty of others and a slight fear of losing that feeling.
Single releases have received support from Tom Robinson's Introducing show on BBC6, Resonance FM, Amazing Radio and various indie and student radio stations in the UK, USA and Australasia.
Christa Vi's debut album release is planned for 2013, produced by George Shilling (Coldcut, Yazz, Teenage Fanclub, Primal Scream etc). Independent single releases include Your Heart and Long Way Home EPs as well as digital releases and collaborations with other producers. Releases via Boltfish Recordings, soon on Electronic Rumors label and on the Smoked&Uncut compilations.
