How great, you've found me :) Welcome
Hello out there!
I am Christina Kulukundis, an folk-alt-country songwriter and singer. I live at the foot of Bredon Hill in Worcestershire, England with my little family, two dogs and two ponies.
Ben Church (guitar, banjo, dobro & harmonica) and Pete Bryden (bass guitar, piano, Hammond organ) and I have been writing and playing music together for the past four years.
I've actually been writing songs and singing for nearly twenty years (yikes). I released an eponymous debut record in 2006 which did pretty well. And now, with children growing up and more time to focus, the guys and I have made a follow-up. I can't wait for you to hear the new songs. They're full of the highs and lows of life and we are all pretty excited about how they turned out.
We were over-the-moon to have the talents of drummer Ian Adams playing on the record, plus none other than Fairport Convention's legendary fiddle player Chris Leslie, Alan Parker on accordion and the beautiful pedal steel of David Ogilvy. Lucky us!
You can hear songs from the record right now on the player at the bottom of this page. I hope you love them :)

"Christina's lyrics perform the difficult trick of evoking a mood beautifully, whilst still leaving room for the listener to connect with their own memories and experiences."
Adam Buxton, British Comedian and Actor
"Her Anglo-American upbringing has given her a unique style; a blend of old fashioned rural vigour and urban wisdom."
