Krista Meadows is an actress/singer/songwriter from Sacramento, California. Meadows’ compositions consist of intense, soulful piano ballads with experimental, cutting-edge drive and World beats. People have compared her style to Radiohead, Pink Floyd, MUSE, Keane, Queen, Tom Waits and Florence and the Machine to name a few. She also pulls her influences from artists such as Enya, Michelle Tumes, Yanni, John Barry, James Horner, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins and many more.
In 2003, Embassy Music’s Nashville Artist Search named her “Artist of the Year.” Meadows then composed 18 original music tracks for the film documentary “The Azusa Street Project” directed by Clay Banks in Los Angeles, CA in 2006. From those compositions, 3 of them were used in other various independent film projects and trailers. Meadows than made a living playing piano in small venues in California, New York and the Mid West.
Starting in 2012, she fronted the band, “Krista Meadows and the Sleeping Giants” out of Springfield, MO and they made their way to Los Angeles for a solo concert at the Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood.
When asked why she decided to book that venue, she answered: “The Whiskey was where the Doors built themselves up.” Krista was in a season of reading all of the material she could find on Jim Morrison and the Doors at the time. “I became intrigued by the energy I could possibly find on that stage. I knew our band had an amazing, organic sound and believed if we could get proper footage to display to other concert venues; we could then show up and deliver something great. So we loaded a mini van (Krista and four bandmates) and drove from Missouri to Los Angeles for that one concert. That trip was one of the best and worst experiences of my life.”
Footage of that concert at the Whisky A Go Go can be found on Youtube. In the Fall of 2013, KMSG released their music video, “Tunnel Vision.”
Krista currently lives in Los Angeles, CA.
