Award-winning songwriter Christa Wells began forging a path as an indie artist in 2009 with a reputation for piano-driven songwriting that poignantly articulates the condition of the human heart. As a vocalist, she’s compared to Alison Sudol (A Fine Frenzy), Regina Spektor and Sarah McLachlan.
Christa has released four solo projects (Frame the Clouds, How Emptiness Sings, Feed Your Soul, Covers) and a fifth album as one-half of duo More Than Rubies. Highwiredaze called Christa’s 2013 release, Feed Your Soul, “one of the most engaging albums of the year” and the current COVERS album “a captivating, thoroughly imaginative experiment.” Her brand-new COVERS ep released in February 2015, featuring reimagined versions of five alternative rock songs from the late 80s-90s (The Smiths, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, U2). In 2006, Christa was named Songwriter of the Year by the GMA for her song “Held” – recorded by Natalie Grant - which defied traditional parameters of the genre and became a crossover hit. Christa lives with her family in North Carolina.
