Artist

Christa Couture

Based In: Vancouver, BC

From the start, Cree/Métis artist Christa Couture established herself as a songwriter with sharp-shooting wit, effortless grace and heart-on-sleeve intensity. Her “gorgeously intimate voice [is] somewhere between the tough vulnerability of Amy Rigby and the passionate, sophisticated folk of Joni Mitchell” (Pop Matters) and her work explores intimate spaces with a frank confidence that avoids cliché and melodrama.  Her sophomore album The Wedding Singer and The Undertaker hit the Top 10 on CBC Radio 3 and won “Best Folk Acoustic Album” from the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards (2008).
