Each song is deeply rooted in a personal, yet extremely vulnerable relationship with God.

In addition to writing and singing, she has toured with several choirs that took her to Romania, Turkey, France, Spain, England, and all over the US. During this journey she found a love for conducting and excelled as a choir director for several choirs. She has worked with The Lesser Light Collective as a soloist, writer, and conductor, directing the choir for their performance at Washington Adventist University.
Christa Deánā inherited perfect pitch, excellent natural timing, a powerful vocal instrument and a creative soul. But shes been diligent to cultivate her gifts, obtaining her music education degree from the University of Valley Forge. Not content to simply make her own music, she pulls beautiful music out of her students and collaborators. She is currently a music educator and worship leader at various facilities and churches. She is also the co-owner for ChristaCourt Productions.
Currently she is focusing on releasing a new single in February 2018 called “If God Doesn’t Want It” and a self entitled album with all new original music Fall 2018.

Rocker Mitch Malloy has released his new, full-length CD MAKING NOISE. This recording marks the first time Malloy has undertaken an album solely by himself from start to finish – songwriting, producing, instruments, mixing and mastering. “I have always brought in a few musicians or songwriters to work with me on projects in the past and have really enjoyed what they brought to the table. But this time, I was in a different place and really needed to work through everything musically by myself…thus, My Therapy!” said Malloy tongue-in-cheek about the first single, with video, aptly called My Therapy.
