Still working on that hot first release.




Passionate about life and love, singer/songwriter Krista Richards empowers her songs and lyrics with an unmistakable and infectious zeal for not only the music she creates, but for the connection the music allows her with people everywhere. Writing and singing from such a deep place of compassion and love has won Krista a wide and loyal fan base and captured the attention of musicians and producers worldwide.

Her smooth, sexy voice, electrifying presence and amazing connection with her audience makes Krista one of the most passionate and evocative vocalists in the industry.


Breaking into the music industry through her love of Electronic Dance Music in 1999, Krista partnered with her brother, Nathan Richards, writing, producing and performing LIVE as äion (pronounced “a-on”).  They chose the name from Carl Jung’s work related to the phenomenon of the self, or the process of becoming distinct or individual in nature.  The pair certainly was unique and they soon enjoyed international success with their roots firmly planted in San Diego.


Krista is well known and well loved within the dance music industry and is most often praised for her powerful and soulful house vocals, lyrics, and melodies.  She has worked extensively with Grammy nominated producer Stonebridge as well as other world-class producers in the industry.

In early 2013, Krista took her music in a very different direction.  She began presenting her songs acoustic style, in very intimate venues.  The response was outstanding.  Her very first concert, and every one since have been packed with attentive, and committed fans.  It is clear that Krista has found the perfect space to share her expression through song.  In contrast to what she had experienced prior, these venues and this style of music called forth a calm, yet powerful listening from her audience.  It’s in this space that Krista has really been able to shine.  Krista has found her niche.  Though, she will continued to work on tracks with dance music producers, and various other musical projects, this style of music really seems to align with Krista’s songs and provides a more suitable platform for her messages of love.


“There is no place I would rather be than in front of a mic and singing to a crowd,” Richards said. “Every fiber of my being knows that this is my path and my calling. I’m grateful for the opportunity to express through music, and for my amazing fans who make this dream possible.”


Krista is currently working on her first solo release The Fours Project.  The project consists of four EPs, containing four songs, and each has it’s own title and theme: “Passion”, “Broken”, “Dream”, and Awake”.   The first of the four was just released May 9th 2014, with the others to follow shortly after in concession.  Of the 16 songs, some are still in the dance pop genre; others are Hip Hop R&B with amazing featured conscious rapper Kiyoshi, while some are organic with live instrumentation, and others have yet to be classified.  In addition to her solo project, Krista has been collaborating with international DJ, DJ Diamond on some exciting new dance tracks.  Their first release together “Holding My Heart Out” released March 2014, reached the top 10 on the Beatport Electro Chart and the powerful tune is currently airing on some of the most popular radio shows around the globe.  Krista & Diamond are already working on a follow up single that is sure to keep the dance floors jumping and hearts melting. 


Krista has already begun touring at festivals and events across the western US in support of her EP “Passion” and is also performing with Kiyoshi in support of his EP “Affirmation” on which Krista is featured on 3 of the 5 songs. 


As a prolific songwriter, Krista continuously takes on various projects across many genres, as she’s inspired.  It is clear that we will be seeing much, much more from this rising star.
