Based out of Venice Beach, Los Angeles, Cristina Vane is taking the town by storm with her unique blend of blues and folk. Originally from Europe, she draws from such a great host of influences that it is impossible to compare her music to any one artist. That being said, she draws decisively from country blues, delta blues, and folk, creating her own flavor of the blues. Whether on the Venice boardwalk busking by the beach or on a stage on the Sunset Strip, her signature silver resonator, slide guitar playing, and powerful vocals are unmistakable and unforgettable.
Before falling in love with the blues, Cristina spent her childhood and adolescence studying classical voice, music theory, piano and flute, ever consumed by music. This theme continues throughout her career today; while she predominantly plays slide guitar, she employs fingerpicking, acoustic, electric guitar techniques, as well as clawhammer banjo playing.
She has been performing in the Southern California area for two years, and spent summers gigging in both New York and London previous to her move to Venice. Her effervescent and edgy personality make for entrancing live performances, which she has honed with hours of practice playing in venues across the city as well as busking for the public on Venice Beach. It is safe to say Cristina lives through music, it saturates her life and is, for her, a necessary vehicle for expression.
Cristina is currently performing in the West Coast area, and can be reached for booking at email@example.com
"Venice Beach may be a far cry from the Mississippi Delta — historically known as birthplace of the blues — but slide guitarist and singer Cristina Vane has the uncanny ability to make a SoCal story sound downright bluesy.Since transplanting to Venice, Vane has toyed with the light and dark sides of Los Angeles in her particular blend of folk and blues, which she’s performed at the Abbot Kinney Festival and takes down to the boardwalk frequently." - Christina Campodonico, The Argonaut Weekly
"Any woman who makes music this good has a right to be Vane." - Steven Gwynne, local musician
"Look out for this hot new talent that just rolled into town with an unstoppable force. Raw blues from the heart!" - Stoney Boy Williams, local bluesman

"If ever anyone was wondering whether there could be a voice sounding even better than Joni Mitchell: right here one makes a find! This is outstandingly stunning! I wish I could give it a thousand likes." - Clouders For
