Recordings from the Early 2000s Taken Off the Shelf for Release

Singer-songwriter Krista Elise is taking almost two-decade old songs and is releasing them on a variety of online media store outlets during January 2018. The songs were created in the U.S. during the early 2000s in partnership with her co-writer and co-musician John Hinzmann. It will be the first time the songs are available for purchase by the public.

January 1, 2018 (FPRC) --

The Milwaukee-based duo Krista Lewandowski and John Hinzmann wrote, recorded, and produced the music in their home studios in the early 2000s and Krista has since re-mastered the tracks for release out of her new U.K. home. The music is an alternative mix of edgy punkish surf-rock guitar and powerfully emphatic vocals, and softer alto melodies enveloped in a down-temp electro atmosphere. The songs were written during keen post-911 awareness and seem to both reflect and foretell the need for human agency in the world. The songs appropriately accompany today's political climate.

Additionally, the songs are an attempt to reconnect the two artists. The two ceased music creation when Krista moved to the Chicagoland area in the early 2000s. While she has been unsuccessful contacting John recently, she believes a successful release of their songs will help her find him.

Krista has sung at venues in the Milwaukee and Chicagoland area including, but not limited to: The House of Blues VIP room, The Beat Kitchen, Uncommon Ground, The Heartland Café, Fitzgerald’s, Cigars and Stripes, and Linneman’s Riverwest Inn. She plans on releasing 5 solo albums this year. It will be the culmination of years of songwriting now for public purchase. There are currently no shows or tour dates scheduled as she works on these albums. Krista’s single “Stay,” released last year, is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon and is available for play on a number of media outlets. The newly released recordings provide appropriate aesthetic to film and television.
