Kristina Lao serves up a hearty blend of country- infused folk-pop. Her music reflects her trans-national upbringing, speaking universal truths in nerdy, wordy ways. Her newest series of videos, First Take Songs, can be found on her YouTube Channel.
Influenced by lyrical masterminds including Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman, she has supported international acts including Frank Turner,(UK) and Ron Hawkins (Canada), and has worked with legendary writer-producers including Robin Millar (Sade) and Simon Darlow (Grace Jones, Toyah). She has played at London's finest indie venues, including Ronnie Scotts' Bar, The Bedford, The Troubadour, and The Jazz Cafe.
She received a prestigious scholarship for Music Performance at Hong Kong University, and is the first person from Hong Kong to be accepted into the London School of Musical Theatre.
