biographical info

From the start, Vancouver’s Christa Couture established herself as a singer-songwriter with sharp-shooting wit, effortless grace and heart-on-sleeve intensity. Since her critically acclaimed debut album, FELL OUT OF OZ (2005), and her sophomore record, THE WEDDING SINGER AND THE UNDERTAKER (2008), she has explored intimate spaces with a frank confidence that avoids cliché and melodrama.

This “criminally underrated songwriter” (Alex Varty, Georgia Straight), released her third album THE LIVING RECORD in September 2012. Produced by Steve Dawson and picked by CBC Music as one of the “Best Albums of 2012,” the record is inspired by tragedy, yet it carries a bright and beautifully-orchestrated indie folk sound; sweet, idiosyncratic vocals reminiscent of artists like Regina Spektor and Jane Siberry; a luscious palette of sonic styles – fuzzy guitar, bluegrass-style pickin’, soulful cello, quirky chorus-like vocal arrangements, even a touch of cabaret.

A remarkable chanteuse, singing superb material,” as deemed by Roots Music Canada, Couture has toured across Canada and Europe from small towns to major festivals.

In addition to being a touring and recording artist, Couture is a graduate of the Vancouver Film School, the managing editor of RPM.fm “Indigenous Music Culture”, a knitter, a blogger, a graphic designer, a scotch drinker, and then some.
