Originally from San Antonio, bofale made their debut in 2019 with the release of their 5-track EP ‘Swim Team’, via Father/Daughter Records. christelle’s songs are like journal entries, exploring the various nooks and crannies of their lived experience. ‘Swim Team’ focuses on loss, broken hearts, and mental health struggles.


christelle is looking toward the future with her new writing, which sits with similar themes along with a new focus on family, childhood, and the person they have found themself to be thus far. A frequent user of the voice memo app, christelle wishes to give a small window into their life through song that hopefully can transform into a small mirror for whoever is on the receiving end.
