ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The reigning Canadian champion of “Hillbilly Bop” - a style that combines the best of Honky tonk, Country Swing, Roots Rockabilly, Jazz and Blues – Alistair’s musical approach is reverent to the past yet unique in style. Alistair usually tours with The Alistair Christl Trio: himself, upright bass and drums. What results is a barebones road house throwback that can wake the dead.

Having spent over 10 years touring Canada and the States, Alistair has established himself as a dominant force in the roots music scene. From house concerts to burlesque festivals his music appeals across the board. An esteemed lyricist and songsmith, he’s released 2 CDs (Unmarked Grave 2007 and 8 Songs by Alistair Christl 2011), is currently working on a third, and has written and arranged music for theater and film. A versatile guitar slinger, Alistair has backed the likes of Rockabilly hall of famer Ronnie Hayward, Genie Nominee Terra Hazelton, Ginger St. James, Big Rude Jake and countless others; artists from whom he has learned much (and stolen a thing or two).

His last release, “8 Songs by Alistair Christl” offers a more subdued variant to his usual catalog. Bare bones, lonely and often moody and melancholic, “8 Songs” draws inspiration from such greats as Orbison and Sinatra to bring a crafted and dynamic exploration to his repertoire.

His present release, Bonnie and Clyde is a live-off-the-floor type record featuring Alistair’s latest toe-tappers, western swing renditions, and some country favorites.
