​​About

Capturing Janis Joplin both vocally and visually right down to the between song banter, Krista captivates her audience with her remarkable portrayal of the legendary 60’s icon. 

Enthralling fans of all generations since 2003, Krista exudes raw emotion that often brings her audience to tears, taking them on an emotional roller coaster and musical trip down memory lane. Her show is so convincing, audience members have been heard to say, "we just witnessed Janis return from beyond!"

Piece of My Heart  is known for sold out shows, standing ovations and its top-notch musicians from the Greater Toronto area.  Travelling as far as San Francisco for corporate functions, her band has been the highlight of multiple summer of love, Woodstock, and 60's themed events. Krista’s ability to emulate Janis has also led to awards and nominations in both Florida and Las Vegas honouring the industry's best celebrity impressionists.​​
