Canadian songwriter, singer, and guitarist Krista Hartman emerged from the prairies on April 18, 1979 in Peace River, Alberta. An inquisitive world traveler with an alternative vibe, her songs and distinct voice are earthy eclectic gems. Krista was raised in a musical family: Her mother was a pianist in a family of rustic fiddle players while her father, was a lead guitarist that toured the prairies with a vintage Gibson Les Paul in Rock’n Rock bands in the early sixties.
