Chrysta Joy Texas Heart

Where are you located now and where are you originally from? I was born and raised in Bellaire, Texas, and I’m currently located in Houston not too far from where I grew up.  Who has been your greatest influence? Musically, I’ve been inspired by Ed Sheeran, Tori Kelly, and Sara Bareilles because their writing style is so raw and honest. Their songs truly tell a story with every element from the vocals to the instrumentation. Growing up in Texas, I also had some rock influence from my parents. That raw honesty was still there and I still use it in my genre just slowed down.  Personally, I’ve been influenced by my family's strength. They immigrated here from the Philippines with just the clothes on their backs. I learned how to keep my head up and work hard from them. I will never forget the sacrifices all with faith and love. What is your latest and greatest? My latest (and maybe greatest) have been short covers on my Instagram following this rough season of life I’ve had. I’m hoping to create a short EP/ project before the end of the year, so stay tuned for that. What are you most looking forward to in 2021? I’m definitely looking forward to making some new goals and taking the next step in my professional career while reconnecting with my friends in person. Hopefully we’ll get to *finally* hug after all this time. How can we stay up to date with you?  You can follow me on instagram @ChrystaJoyMusic (
