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....
