Tuned In to Krista Parrish

Doylestown singer-songwriter Krista Parrish has been making waves on the local and national jazz circuit. Her funky, soulful jazz draws comparison to such artists as Fiona Apple and Norah Jones. "The first time I ever heard Ella Fitzgerald. Something inside of me happened and I couldn't believe what I was hearing... I just wanted to sound like that," says Krista.

She is the byproduct of a musical household. Krista's father is a classical guitarist and her mother, an opera singer. Parrish's command of the guitar could easily steal the show, if her voice weren't equally as magnetic. So it's obvious that those early influences have been fused into her music, creating a sound uniquely her own.

Through our "Share your band" submission on 6abc.com, we received over 100 requests from her fans to do a feature. Tuned In taped Parrish at The Tin Angel in the Old City section of Philadelphia. Check out performance video in the media carousel at the top of the page.
