Music has always been central not only to my own life,
but to Wandering Turtle's mission and offerings as well.
Sweany Artworks & Wandering Turtle On-Line will continue to support
Bloomington Area Musiciansby showcasing new music as it is released.
We will provide links to musician's websites (see Musician's Page above)so you can
your favorite local music!

“If God's very favorite angel got sick of His shit, smoked a pack of Reds, drank some Jack and Gate-crashed a piano bar, this is how she would sound. Krista's voice is two parts holy and one part hussy, perfectly complimented by expert piano work that will leave you wrung-out but ready for more. I can't say enough about this super-dope soul out of the Indiana outback, she's the TRUTH!”
- Ace Ha, Producer for Geffen artist Prima J
"Her music is a great big old traveling troupe, there are comediennes and trapeze artists, carnival barkers and preachers and knife-throwers under a tent on the edge of town, gaslight and mirrors and something that shines in the sawdust... kept me hanging on every note, every night."
- Peter Mulvey, singer songwriter
“A Great Voice!” - Gary Katz, Producer (Laura Nyro, Steely Dan)
“I swear, I am Krista's biggest fan.
I mean it, hands down. Incredible musician, songwriter, person...simply outstanding.” - Jaime Sweany, Owner,
Wandering Turtle Art Gallery & Gifts

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader,
but as a reflection of us all." - John Lennon
