Blending soulful vocals and slide guitar chops,
Christina’s songwriting takes us on a truthful journey that alternates
folk, rock, and jazz with ease.
Christina Apostolopoulos is a Greek-Canadian force. Born in Toronto and raised on the sunny shores of Santa Barbara, she grew up on the music of influential songwriters like Paul Simon and Jackson Browne. Christina began her own guitar journey at age seven. She attended Berklee College of Music on a partial scholarship, where she was featured in songwriting showcases every year of her attendance, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Music in Guitar Performance.
In 2015, Christina relocated to Los Angeles and quickly fell into a supportive community of artists. In 2016, she flourished under that support, exceeding her monetary goal in a Kickstarter campaign to fund her first full-length album, The Only Thing I’m Good At. In 2018, she was a headliner at the WFSU Fest in DTLA, sharing the bill with Kimya Dawson and other female-fronted groups. In 2020, Christina still managed to release three singles and three music videos amid the Covid-19 pandemic, finding creative solace in these projects. Her songs have also had placements in film & television, most recently on The Young and the Restless.
In addition to her solo career, Christina is a sought-after session musician, known predominantly for her slide guitar chops. She has played lead guitar for many bands, including Vista Kicks, wIth whom she opened for The Rolling Stones at Hyde Park this summer. Christina is currently playing lead guitar for Cuffed Up on their fall US tour.
When she returns, Christina plans to continue writing and recording her own music while fostering new collaborations in Los Angeles. She also loves teaching and being a positive, patient influence for a younger generation— especially young women. Wherever Christina can step into the powerful network of female artistry and give back, she has, and she will continue to do so.
