You Are the One
Hailing from Madrid but well-versed in a number of different languages, soft-spoken indie pop singer Cristina Quesada harks back to the gentle world of vintage Europop. Taking up the guitar at age 13, she learned to play her favorite songs, working in theater troupes and eventually joining the cast of a children's television program in the Canary Islands. A couple of years later she discovered the ukulele, which became her primary instrument and led to the recording of her first 7" single for Spanish indie pop label Elefant Records in 2013. Working with a number of collaborators in and out of the Elefant stable, Quesada began recording her debut LP in 2014. A mix of originals and unusual covers sung in Spanish, English, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and even Japanese, You Are the One was released in early 2015.
