Christina "Sweet Beets" Boyden started her musical career as a DJ in Southern California.  While living on the west coast, she played all vinyl, multi-genre DJ sets at venues, festivals, private parties, weddings, trade shows, skateboard/snowboard/surf/bmx contests and award ceremonies all over the country for over a decade, which eventually brought her to Maui, Hawaii, where she now resides.  She performed as a resident DJ for Starborne Productions in Seattle, WA as well as Tasty Pie Productions in Maui, HI in more recent years.  Shortly after moving to Maui, she felt inspired by her new island lifestyle to begin writing original acoustic music, which has now taken her on a whole new creative endeavor.  She just released her first  full length album, "Sweet Aloha" featuring acclaimed musicians Barry Sless (Phil Lesh & Friends/Dave Nelson Band), Pete Sears (Jefferson Starship/Dave Nelson Band), John Molo (Bruce Hornsby/Dave Nelson Band), and Mookie Siegel (Phil Lesh & Friends/Dave Nelson Band). Her lyrics are sweet, poignant, and heartfelt, enriched by thoughtful, unforgettable melodies.
