CRISTABELLE BRADEN is a singer/songwriter, speaker, and national advocate for brain injury. After suffering a traumatic brain injury as a teen, she began to write music. Since then, she has surpassed medical expectations and thrived in her newfound gift of music, by graduating from college, recording and releasing original music, and touring independently across the nation. She is also a music producer, graphic designer, author, and the founder of Hope After Head Injury, an organization dedicated to brain injury awareness and support.

The hope Cristabelle lives out each day shines through on stage and off, as she shares her emotional journey with a sweet sincerity and a wisdom far beyond her years. Her music tells her story through songs narrating the struggle of finding hope through the darkest times, never giving up, and continuing to fight despite the most difficult of circumstances.

In February 2017 she released an original EP entitled Hope Survives, and subsequently set out on the “Hope Survives Tour” to sing and speak at brain injury support groups, rehab centers, conferences, prison ministries, homeless shelters, music venues, and more, all across the nation. She is also an accomplished conference speaker, having given keynote addresses at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, as well as statewide brain injury conferences in Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Rhode Island, North Dakota, among others.

Cristabelle is gearing up to release her new album this fall, with the first single “Light in the Dark” available now.
