Originally from Dallas, TX, Christine has also lived in London, New York, Nashville, and Los Angeles.
An astute observer and natural storyteller, Christine’s songs focus on the human condition, touching on alienation and acceptance, love and longing, materialism and modesty.
Her instinctive pop writing talent marries an indie flair, and yields pleasing melodies, beautiful harmonies, and intelligent lyrics.
She delivers her songs confidently with a soulful voice “full of feeling and beauty,” (LA recording artist, Rane).
Comparisons help us categorize, so although Christine has her own distinct vocal style, fans have likened her to Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, Emmylou Harris, and Eddie Brickell. She is very proud that two guys said she reminded them of Lou Reed and Robert Smith (The Cure).
SOMEONE I’LL NEVER MEET features ten original cuts ranging in content from a sparsely arranged portrait of the fallen to an up-tempo, zydeco-like song about a transgender person finding acceptance.
Tracked with a full band, the CD features Rick G. Nelson of The Polyphonic Spree on strings and was mixed by NARAS Trustee and Grammy Nominee, Chris Bell, (Erykah Badu, Don Henley, Beyonce) at Luminous Sound (Dallas, TX) and mastered by Steve Fallone, (TV On The Radio, The Strokes, Sonic Youth) at New York’s Sterling Sound.
