On Wednesday the 21st of September our feature artist is Christina Gurrola a singer-songwriter from El Paso, Texas.

She began exploring the art of improvisation and songwriting in 2007 guided by jazz pianist "Joel Diamond". The two met during a waitressing job in an NYC upper west side Cafe.

She moved back to El Paso and continued performing in obscurity in the occasional open mic. Eventually, her music was noticed and Christina started performing professionally at various museums, restaurants, and festivals.

After a series of backing vocal and writing sessions for other artists, she finally decided to record her own music and released "Dawn Medley" in the summer of 2015.

Her writing style has traces of pop, folk and jazz. She was a finalist in 2012's "Tengo Talento Mucho Talento", featuring judges Ana Barbara, Hector Suarez, and Pepe Garza.

Christina has had the privilege to collaborate with various artists. She has the capability to serenade with lullaby delicacy in intimate acoustic settings, and can get the crowd moving while being frontwoman to the rhythm of a full band. Christina has opened the stage for artists such as Zoe, Enjambre, Irene Diaz, Gaby Moreno and David Garza.
