There is only one Krista Muir. She lives in a world of surrealism, of cuckoo clocks and antique lampshades, of ukuleles with varying dispositions and lace collars, of the classic bob haircut of a not-so-folk singer, and a sailor uniform that has taken her on a melodic ship around the world.
Muir toured for several years as her alter ego Lederhosen Lucil and released two full length albums "Hosemusik" and "Tales From The Pantry" as well as the "Apricota" single featuring a DJ Kid Koala remix. After falling for the baritone ukulele in 2006, Krista composed a collection of whimsical tunes that she recorded with Toronto's Fembots and Montreal producer Shane Watt. "Leave Alight" (2007) led to "Accidental Railway," (2008) an imaginary city that is also her first concept album.
Muir's multidisciplinary approach to life has led her down many beautiful paths between records. She has had the pleasure of working with director Kara Blake on 3 videos, including the recent stop-motion animation for "Concrete Lovesong." (2009) She also composed music for Canadian filmmakers Sarah Galea-Davis ("I Made A Girlfriend" - 2006) and Sophie Deraspe ("Signes Vitaux" - 2009).Krista's live performances are hailed as bright, engaging and beautiful - she always brings her love of musical theatre, improv and humor to the stage.
Krista has played over 300 shows worldwide since 2003.As a proud uke evangelist Krista founded the Montreal Ukulele Bizarro Festival in May 2009 and will continue this annual tradition of showcasing uke enthusiasts from all walks of life. In June 2010 Krista teams up with PopMontreal to host "Ukepop." She is currently in the studio working on her upcoming album "Between Atoms." (2010/2011)
