Christa Wells
Award-winning singer-songwriter Christa Wells writes deep-reaching, piano-driven alt-pop songs about family, home, grief, and hope. Feed Your Soul, released in 2013, was recorded at Zodlounge Music in Nashville and represents a departure from her past records. From the title track’s horn lines to the driving kick drum and rhythmic hits on “The Way That You Love Me,” it’s bigger & sassier, even as it maintains Wells’ recognizable introspective lyricism. In 2006, Christa was named Songwriter of the Year by the Gospel Music Association for Natalie Grant’s recording of “Held.”Since then, she has performed 30-50 dates a year (varying by season), frequently with collaborator Nicole Witt, while continuing to write for other artists. Christa has written for and with a number of recording artists, such as Plumb, Selah, Sara Groves, Nicol Sponberg, and Point of Grace. Christa currently lives with her family in Raleigh, North Carolina.
