Spotlight - Christina Maria

Christina Maria's second album release, 2010's Straight Line, is a collection of folk-pop tunes that highlight Maria's distinctive voice that is soft, but full and strong, and shows the darkness of beautiful reality. Born in Vancouver, B.C., Maria recorded Straight Line, with five different producers, in different studios, with varying back musicians to each recording session. Even with the extra lush twinkles of the session musicians, Maria's voice (which at times sounds like early Feist) and heart ring above all. We dig her arty video for "Straight Line," and you should too.
