ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christine Donovan is an emerging Canadian singer/songwriter. She lives in Napanee, Ontario Canada but was born in Kingston, Ontario.

Her first CD, "Rain Down On Me" is a culmination of a year's journey in her life and her expression of it in song. It all began after being asked to sing a song on a CD written by a songwriter in Napanee, Steve Medd, who also had Avril Lavigne sing on his CD. Christine was so inspired by the creative process she wondered if she could make her own CD and with the help and encouragement of her family and friends proceeded to start recording songs she had written.
She was hooked! Like Steve Tyler from Aerosmith has said in an interview (Aerosmith is Christine's FAVOURITE BAND) "Once you dance around the fire or rock and roll and feel the warmth....you want to stay there....(approx. quote)

Christine put this self produced album together over a seven month period in three different sessions at a great little studio owned by Ken Harnden at Pinnacle Music Studios in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. Her CD, which is principally blues rock tinged with a country accent - decidely "rootsy" was stamped by her passionate vocals. Christine is simply a truly outstanding vocalist with incredible range (3 octaves and growing) and ability to pour her heart into what she sings.

Since this album, Christine has been continuing her journey...remembering that its the journey that is the most important thing, not where you are heading...the destination is less important than the process.

Her newest album, also self produced is called Lucky Me and is a progression from this one. You can also find it here at CD Baby. More to come....

Smooth Laid Back
Smooth laid back effort with Blues/Soul vocals with other
touches in all the right places Just great! And a neat wee
version of the oft covered Crazy. Not what you might expect
but there you go... Proving once again that Canada does
alright!!

Bob MacKenzie (Sound Bytes music reviews)

With polished arrangements, full and rich instrumentation, and powerful vocals,
Although this is only Christine Donovan's first release, "Rain Down On Me" is a notable accomplishment, in my opinion far superior to her second release, "Lucky Me." And "Lucky Me" is already an impressive showcase for Donovan's talent. On this release, the arrangements are more polished, the instrumentation is fuller and richer, and Donovan's vocals are spot on. Less eclectic than her first release, this album presents a singer who is rapidly finding her own voice, and what a voice! Although Donovan often takes on a country flavour as in "When Will I See You Again" or the Patsy Cline classic "Crazy" and at other times slips into a pop-rock mode, she's at her best when singing no holds barred rock and roll. Perhaps the best song on this set is "All That Really Matters," a slow, driving rocker with a hard vocal edge. It's in this mode that Donovan's at her strongest. With a second release already leaps and bounds ahead of her first, who can predict what this Canadian artist will accomplish down the road.

Another great singer from the Ontario-region.
I’ve said it before and I say it again: there’s something really interesting goin’ on in the Canadian music scene. Especially the Ontario-region brings us very good music these days. Of course we already know Shannon Lyon, one of the best singer/songwriters at the moment. And also one of my favorite singers, Sarah Harmer, hails from Ontaria. She lives in a place called Kingston. Singer/songwriter Christine Donovan is from that place too. I think many men will knuckle down only by seeing the cover of Christine’s “Rain down on me”-CD (in fairness: just like I did). But Christine owns much more than a pretty face! Her arresting vocals, beautiful melodies and intriguing lyrics will knuckle you down again! “Rain down on me”, which contains very fine self-penned blues-, rock and folksongs and a cover of Willie Nelson’s “Crazy”, hits like a rock from the opening track (Lovin’ Cup) up to the final song (Let it Go). I’m sure, this very radio friendly CD will be on my playlist for a very long time.

"Yeah!"
".......just heard Christine Donovan's album: Ontario finally has teeth!.......yeah!"

Greg Burliuk - The Kingston Whig Standard

...soulful singer
...it's hard to believe Donovan hasn't been active in so long because her soulful voice sounds like it's spent the last 25 years hard at work!
