ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Decades before indie labels were the norm, and years before women had any real access in the industry, Cris Williamson was changing the face of popular music. She conceived of a national all-women's record company, which subsequently issued her now-legendary classic, The Changer and the Changed -- one of the best-selling independent releases of all time. An entire sub-culture came to be around her songs and her music. A movement was established. Her out politics and pro-environment stance paved the way for many of today's artists. She is part of the curriculum in Women's Studies programs around the world. Her songs are sung around campfires and appear in hymnals and are covered by the young rockers of today. And whether she is gracing the cover of Ms Magazine or selling out Carnegie Hall three times, Cris's many and varied accomplishments are only to be overshadowed by her amazing voice.

CD Baby


Tapping into a reservoir of adult contemporary and soft rock talents like Karen Carpenter, Anne Murray, Jann Arden with equal echoes of Annie Lennox, Olivia Newton John and Bonnie Raitt, Cris blows in with a fresh voice and approach, straddling a style that is both deeply rooted and resonant of 70s and 80s female pop while still challenging the genre to be contemporary and relevant to today's styles. No matter how you might classify her, her strong, warm and from-the-gut voice carries these songs with ease and conviction. It is no wonder why she pulls fans out of the woodwork whenever she shows up in town.
