ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chris Blackwell, founder of Island records and discoverer of Bob Marley, Marianne Faithful, and Grace Jones, came out of 18 years of retirement to take this rare beauty & huge talent under his wing.... Sultry, mysterious, boundless & impossible to label, Christy enters the scene as a highly original image, performer and songwriter whose vocal and piano prowess consistently drops jaws.

A child prodigy, her music began with classical training which evolved on to the blues all the while under the encouragement of masters such as Macarthur award recipients Ran Blake and George Russell; this led to the creation of her first album "The Blues" at the age of 15. Always a mover, in a 180 degree turn Christy then moved away from the blues, poised to bring her extremely individual sound to the mainstream market.

Just at the point of being ready to progress her performance career, Christy was struck down with Crohn's Disease. The 6 year battle with the disease plunged Christy into a well of human experience revealing much of life's deepest lessons and values. Her perception, performance power and depth of humanity are borne of a journey that forced her to fight for physical, mental and emotional freedom.

An outstanding performer, Christy has always reached the heights. Nationally ranked in Track and Field, an All-American in Lacrosse, she went on to competitively play Division 1 lacrosse and soccer at Princeton University. Christy continues to bring that tremendous energetic force to her live performances, electrifying her audience.

Christy is a model and most recently walked an international catwalk show for European designers this past fall in NYC.

Christy has lived between London , Switzerland , Australia , Los Angeles , NYC, and Jamaica and for the past 4 years she has been traveling extensively around the world. She is currently in London modeling & preparing a debut album.

This is all her own work that has only been released privately as of now. She sends her love.

Amazing vocals that just sing to your soul.
This CD is very good, the tracks are awesome with lots of soulful blues that just have you listening all over again.

carrarini bruno

ecriture interessante
je suis resté surpris par la maturité et l'ecriture de cet album, j ai eut l impression que cette jeune femme cherchait surtout une performance vocal, malgre tout le disque est interessant et la vigueur dont elle fait preuve est de bon augure pour l avenir

Maria Williams

A whole lotta soul...
What a soulful voice! Good compilation of blues.

Stunning work, authentic phasing, just exelent.
Stunning work, authentic phasing. Just a documentary guide to the piano blues and the vocal styles of the southland. Exelent.
