"Acoustic Guitarist of the Year" and Singer/Songwriter Christie Lenée reveals a preview of "Coming Alive," her sixth studio album. “Coming Alive reflects a feeling of self-empowerment and emerging back into the wild,” says Lenée. “I want listeners to be a part of this liberating sensation.”
Driven by iconic guitar hooks and powerhouse vocal performances, Christie was excited to collaborate with Matthew Odmark (Jars of Clay) to co-produce an album that’s “more plugged in, but remaining true to my acoustic heart.” Her core band features drummer Keith Carlock (Steely Dan, Toto, Sting, John Mayer) and Grammy Award Winning bassist Adam Nitti (Kenny Loggins, Carrie Underwood, Susan Tedeschi).
The album opens with the title track "Coming Alive," a joyous anthem to a life full of possibilities. "That Voice" follows with a very personal internal experience about the power of dismissing thoughts of self-doubt. This lead single is about breaking away from limiting beliefs and standing up to the voice who says “I’m not good enough,” and instead listening to the one who says “I can do anything.”
Lenée’s acoustic and electric guitar playing throughout "Coming Alive" will easily remind fans why she was awarded the titles of “International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion” in 2017, and “Acoustic Guitarist of the Year” 2019 (London, UK).
The first single "That Voice" just released on Friday, August 5th. A series of videos will follow the single release of "That Voice," featuring Christie Lenée in studio with Keith Carlock and Adam Nitti. Here is the Hyperlink for the single including a video teaser: https://smarturl.it/thatvoice
The Full Album will soon be available for pre-order in hard copy, with Official Release Date November 18th, 2022.
