"Alternative from Los Angeles"

NYC native, Christina Cuesta Loeb (who dropped the "Christina" for her debut solo project) comes from a family of musicians. Born to world-renown jazz guitarist Chuck Loeb and Spanish singer-songwriter/actress Carmen Cuesta, she grew up between the US and Spain, studying classical flute and bassoon. While she really enjoyed performing and playing in orchestras, Cuesta Loeb was unable to find her voice in classical music. In 2015, she moved to Los Angeles and began experimenting in her own songwriting and production.Inspired by Green Day, The Smashing Pumpkins, Fiona Apple, and (early) Sheryl Crow, she combined her love of dark, haunting melodies with dreamy, ethereal instrumentation and vocals. She found her home somewhere in the world of Dream Pop, with a blend of everything from acoustic ukuleles to Shoegaze-heavy guitars. From this, she linked up with guitar player/producer, Blake Straus. Together they are recording the band’s debut record, to be released by Fierce Panda in the summer of 2018. The two sisters, Christina and Lizzy, joined forces in 2017 for the live Cuesta Loeb shows. Lizzy Loeb is featured on guitar, vocal dreamy textures and harmonies.
