Premiere: Cuesta Loeb – “Grass It Grows”

NYC native, Christina Cuesta Loeb (who dropped “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.

Recorded at her home studio in Los Angeles, CA, with the exception of live drums, she worked with Producer/Guitarist Blake Straus and Michael Garner (of Hunter Hunted). It’s a collection of 5 songs, which Cuesta Loeb plans to turn into a full length by the end of the year. There’s an element of darkness to the shoegaze album, but certainly lightened up with unexpected dreamy and acoustic elements.
