ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
PRESENT-
\"When I go about writing a song I want to convey a message that there is something beyond this earth. There is this beautiful mystery rising above the everyday earthly sorrow that we all endure here. I want to touch a person’s spirit when I play, and I feel that music has that power”.
“If I am able to reach one person then I\'ve done what I came to this world to do.\"

Her live performances often feature some of her international influences as well as favorites from Mahalia Jackson, Nick Drake, John Lennon, & Emmylou Harris, to name a few.

Having spent much of her time performing as a solo artist, she now loves the company and sound of performing with bassist/guitarist Darren Anderson.
Together they have founded and launched the independent music company; Firesign Entertainment which helps to promote awareness for authentic musicians and give them a platform from which to speak from. www.firesignentertainment.com.

PAST HISTORY-
Kristina was born on the Micronesian island of Agana, Guam in the little villiage of Oka, Tamuning on November 25th, Thanksgiving day. Born to Johnny Sablan, a 100% native Chamorro of Guam, and Bruni Parello, of half Sicilian, half Lebanese decent. Kristina\'s father is a singer/songwriter/ producer, and cultural activist of Guam. His years and contributions of keeping the culture of the Island alive through song, are appreciated and respected among the indigenous people of the island and beyond.
Her mother BRUNI, is an Internationally renowned portrait painter of Jazz Musicians, and her \'Tribute to Africa\', and has an immense body of work. She made certain that Kristina had the background in Jazz music by taking her to many shows where Kristina would watch her mother sketch the musicians. She saw and met many of the greats like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Rollins, Abbey Lincoln, Shirley Horn and many more.
Kristina grew up in a home that upheld a strong respect and discipline for the arts.
“There was much music and laughter in my early years with my parents in Hollywood. They were often entertaining friends at fun gatherings where we would all sit around and sing and play music.”
As the years passed, Kristina and her parents moved up to Northern California where Kristina spent most of her childhood and teenage years learning classical piano from her grandmother, singing and writing songs, and finally learning to play the guitar.
“I have been very influenced by Jazz and the Bossa Nova music of Brazil, from my mother, mixed with the Island/Country sounds of my fathers music from Guam, throw in a ton of classical composers as well as 70’s radio, and you have my background in what I grew up listening to.
