How great, you've found me :) Welcome

Hello!

My name is Christina Kulukundis and I am a songwriter and singer living at the foot of Bredon Hill in Worcestershire, England.  For the past 9 years, my friends Ben Church (guitar, banjo, dobro & harmonica) and Pete Bryden (bass guitar, piano, Hammond organ) and I have been writing and playing music together. I've been writing songs and singing for twenty years and released my first eponymous debut record in 2006. Our 2016 follow-up was full of stories of the highs and lows of life. Both records are on Spotify and iTunes, so please have a listen if you have a moment.

We love playing special gigs in unusual venues so if you think you knwo the perfect place, please let me know! We have welcomed some amazing talent to the band; Pete Miln on violin, Rob Peate playing piano and Max Roache is joining us on drums. All in all it's sounding lovely.

I hope you enjoy looking around the site. There is always some music on the player at the bottom of the page to keep you company. Have a lovely day.

Sheet music for our songs

After a lot of careful work on the part of me, my friends Mary & Max, and the wonderful Georgia at Pitch Perfect Music, I am delighted to announce to the tiny sliver of society who would be interested, that my record Stars Behind Stars Behind Stars is now available as a book of sheet music.  The songs have been arranged for Piano, Vocal & Guitar (picture chords).  There are also lots of the Backing Vocal lines in there. What a great thought that there might be people out there singing and playing our songs for themselves. Have fun!
