|Singing My Blues Away|
|I Keep Walking The Road That Leads Me Back To You|
Kriz Rogers was born Kristina Elisabeth Lindberg in the small village of Stocka on the east coast of Sweden. Her parents loved music, especially Swedish folk music and country music. Even as a small child, the Christmas and Birthday presents they gave her were toy instruments. Kriz started singing in Sunday school at age six and at age ten to country songs on the cassettes her daddy gave her. She started learning to play guitar when she was twelve, and it came natural for her to sing while playing guitar. At age thirteen she made her first public appearance in Stocka in the school show celebrating the beginning of summer holidays. At the end of the summer she had written her first country song and now has the satisfaction of completing over 260 songs.
The country music her father listened to has always been an inspiration and influence in Kriz's music with artists such as Hank williams, Sr., Buck Owens, Johnny Horton, Charley Pride, Loretta Lynn, Tom T. Hall, Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, Bonnie Owens and the list goes on and on.
Kriztina Rogers has released two albums with her original songs in the name “Kriztina Åhs & Countryfied”. The albums are called “Kriztinacountry” and “Roads”. Both have been very well received and given great reviews in Sweden, and the songs have been played on radio stations all over the world. The song “Singing My Blues Away” reached #15 on European Country Music Association's chart 2009. Kriz has performed at major country music festivals in Sweden like Duved, Lingbo and Vemdalen. In September 2008 she was one of three contestants in The Swedish Mastership of Country Music called "CountrySM".
