Biography

Over the course of her acclaimed career, Christa Couture, a Prairie-raised award-winning Cree/Scandinavian songwriter, queer, non-fiction writer and broadcaster, has become known, unenviably, as an expert in loss: singing, speaking and writing about the childhood cancer that led to the amputation of her left leg, abortion, and the tragic deaths of her two infant sons. When it came time to make her fourth album, 2016’s eclectic, upbeat and twangy “Long Time Leaving”, a more run-of-the-mill loss, divorce, provided inspiration. But her new project, “Safe Harbour”, tells a different story. Clocking in at 18 resilient, brilliant minutes of buoyant and tender piano pop, “Safe Harbour” is Couture’s first entirely piano-based project written during a thankfully tragedy-free, joyful time in Couture’s life that saw her leave Vancouver, her home of 17 years, and relocate to Toronto to start anew.
