NYC native, Christina Cuesta Loeb (who dropped the “Christina” for her debut solo project) comes from a family of musicians. Born to world-renown jazz guitarist Chuck Loeb and Spanish singer-songwriter/actress Carmen Cuesta, she grew up between the US and Spain, studying classical flute and bassoon.
While she really enjoyed performing and playing in orchestras, Cuesta Loeb was unable to find her voice in classical music. In 2015, she moved to Los Angeles and began experimenting in her own songwriting and production.
“It feels like everything has been said a million times before. It’s hard to find a way to express an emotion without using someone else’s words,” says Loeb on the subject of her new single. “Which inherently diminishes the sentiment. This song is about finding my voice in a sea of echoes.”
“I’m filming a music video for this single, Charlotte Hill, in the desert, which I am really excited about. I was lucky enough to get the amazing Steven Soria on board for this project. He got my vision immediately. Then, next year I will be finally be releasing my full debut EP!”
Inspired by Green Day, The Smashing Pumpkins, Fiona Apple, and (early) Sheryl Crow, she combined her love of dark, haunting melodies with dreamy, etherial instrumentation and vocals. She found her home somewhere in the world of Dream Pop, with a blend of everything from acoustic ukuleles to Shoegaze-heavy guitars.
From this, she self-produced and recorded her first 4 track EP, Dive, to be independently released in September of 2016.
