Krista Polvere launches Pledge Music campaign for Reservoir Drive
Alt/Country singer/songwriter Krista Polvere takes to the pages of Pledge Music to raise funds for the release of her second full length album in both Australia and the U.S.A.
Krista penned 12 new songs for Reservoir Drive including ‘Jack and Me’, the follow up single to ‘Looking For Love’ (featuring Ryan Adams).
A tale of love and treachery, ‘Jack and Me’ mines rich alt-country territory, combining both the femme fatale archetype pioneered by Bobbie Gentry and the gritty female troubadour of Lucinda Williams.

About Krista Polvere:
Playing shows around the small bars and clubs in Adelaide, Polvere followed her muse to Melbourne for its famed live music culture and also ventured to New York City for an adventure, travelling to the heart of where the folk scene began. Known to be a huge Dylan fan, she was mesmerized by the history of the music scene there. An introduction to Jon Graboff of The Cardinals led to a meeting with Ryan Adams, with whom she co-wrote tracks for her debut album Here Be Dragons.
Krista clocked up expert live performance experience accompanying Ryan Adams and The Cardinals on a national Australian tour to sell out shows, also opening for Canadian folk man Ron Sexsmith and touring with Steve Earle.
Marc Ford (The Black Crowes) and his long-time friend /music collaborator Anthony Arvizu recorded and mixed Krista’s second album live in their Long Beach Californian studio, The Compound in just three weeks.
The result is the sparkling alt/country ride Reservoir Drive, a showcase for Krista’s song writing ability and voice – out on iTunes and through Bandcamp on April 30.
“She’s going to be the next big thing. I did some guitar and some vocals and I would say this: I have always been impressed by her. She’s always impressed me as a songwriter and a friend. But the songs I’ve heard this time, I can honestly say I had no idea that she was capable of what I heard… I was shocked at how intricate it was…. a powerful record. It’s going to be a real game-changer.” – Ryan Adams
