Always innovative and pushing the limit, Kristina Koller is making her mark in the music world. As an evolving jazz-centric artist, Kristina has developed into a highly individual songwriter, arranger & vocalist.
Koller creates music that crosses generations, while still embracing the history and mood of traditional jazz. She arranges tunes in unique ways, pushing the boundaries of vocal jazz. Kristina revamps classic material while retaining their essence, putting her own winning personality and fresh ideas into the music & lyrics that she interprets.
Her diverse & unconventional approach is exemplified on her first two albums Perception and Stronger. In her debut album Perception, Koller breaks through the standard vocal jazz mold and delivers a compilation of deftly composed originals and reimagined gems, carefully selected with the thematic focus of love and relationships at the forefront of each. On Stronger she takes a deep, risky dive and combines art rock with jazz & indie-pop in an array of original music. The thematic & powerful songs radiate mental strength, projecting empowerment through self-discovery & awareness. On her latest album Get Out of Town, Koller celebrates the music of Cole Porter in her own distinct way. She mixes R&B, neo-soul, traditional swing and acoustic jazz sounds in a tight 8 song compendium of Porter’s music. The music was debuted during her 2021 Cole Porter Re-Imagined midwest tour funded by the South Arts Organization.
