I prefer others to talk about me, that's the best reference: "This is a nice vocal ... strong ... and very distinctinctive -- doesn't sound like anyone else. " (US) "The new jewel of music in Aragón (Spain)" "This female singer has the range and technique of a real pro." (Canada) ...

Biography

Perhaps I am one of the few musicians who, having taken a guitar and sung for the first time a year and a half before, has performed more than 100 concerts during this last year without going to one of these TV programs that boost rock stars and so on!! (And, I suppose this may mean something...).
So my bio is quite interesting because I have made many things in life, and I have always been the best in what I have done. Now, I have started a new challenge. What you may hear are my first songs, now I am preparing my second cd, with a little more knowledge than the first, which wasn't intended to be sold.

I must tell you that all critics and musicians tell me I don't sound like any other else. My vocals may seem a bit Irish, but the songs I make have something different and people really enjoy them (I remind you, more than 100 concerts... and I got paid for all of them).

The only problem I have here in Spain, as A&R told me, is that I SING IN ENGLISH!! I feel more comfortable singing in English, this is the most international language and my music can reach every corner in the world, so after considering an offer from a record label here to sing in Spanish, I rejected, I want to reach every corner of this world, and if I have to leave my home... I'll make of the place where I arrive a new cosy one.
My influences are as eclectic as my music (Three Lovers has nothing to do with Spanish Lullaby, evidently), but I really enjoy bands or musicians who are able to offer you different points of view in the same cd, for instance, the Beatles: What does Yellow Submarine have to do with "A day in the life"? And they appear in the same album. And What about Prince? Check Purple Rain and his different songs there and you'll know what I mean. And for me, they are two of the great gurus of music during the 20th century.

What sets me apart from other bands? Everything, I think. I sound like myself.

WASTELAND

(by Krisenka Finley, copyright 2004)

LOVE IS LIKE TILLING FIELDS SO THAT A GOOD CROP CAN GROW
YOU’D BETTER KNOW WHERE TO DROP YOUR GRAIN
OTHERWISE YOU CAN WORK IN VAIN
AND SEE YOUR HARVEST WITHERED AWAY AND PLUCKED BY CROWS

(CHORUS):
AND I FOUND OLD WASTELAND
WANTED TO SOW MY BEST SEED
AND NOTHING GREW FROM THE SAND
ONLY SCORCHED CROP UNDER MY FEET

HOW COULD I KNOW THE KIND OF SOIL THAT I WAS WORKING ON
BEFORE LETTING IT BREAK MY HEART
I DID MY BEST AND I PLOUGHED HARD
BUT IT WAS USELESS AND SPOILT, THE LAND I WAS WORKING ON

(CHORUS)

(GUITAR SOLO)

YOU’D BETTER KNOW WHERE TO DROP YOUR GRAIN
OTHERWISE YOU CAN WORK IN VAIN
AND IT WAS USELESS AND SPOILT, THE LAND I WAS WORKING ON.

SPANISH LULLABY

(by Krisenka Finley, copyright 2004)

DREAM, LITTLE BABY
DREAM, LITTLE BABY

MY LITTLE DARLING
DO NOT CRY
DREAM OF ANGELS SINGING
LULLABIES

AH...

DREAM, LITTLE BABY
DREAM, LITTLE BABY

MY LITTLE FLOWER
AS NIGHT GOES BY
CANDY SLUMBERS
CROSS THE SKY

AH...
OH...
