Electric rock harpist sets the stage for a revolutionary music experience. Cleveland is the American city where the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum resides; fitting then that Cleveland should also be the home of rock harpist Christina Kline. Inspired by legendary rock artists, Kline has a unique style demonstrating cutting- edge artistic expression, a showcase of creative arrangements that electronically transform the harp.
As a child, Christina was moved by the elegance and tone of the harp, and began her formal studies at age twelve with Laura Erb. Ms. Erb has been recognized for her expertise in music arrangements for Hollywood’s movie music scores (“ The Godfather”, “Love Story”) It was only three months later Christina began performing for events, country clubs, restaurants, Cleveland’s Playhouse Square, etc.
Ready to pursue a career in music, Christina attended Ohio University where she majored in harp performance. Upon receiving a call to play in Cleveland for the king of Jordan, she returned and shortly thereafter began her private practice teaching over 26 students, formed a harp ensemble, and began her own agency “Makin’ Music” acting as agent and promoting local musicians. She continued to play locally including a ten year engagement at the Ritz Carlton in downtown Cleveland and had impromptu performances with rock icons including Robert Plant, Rodger Daltry, Billy Joel, etc. The sessions could go on for hours and the seeds for “Harp Rock” were taking root.
Here is an artist that produced and released her first recording in 1992 “Golden Harp Lullabies” with the St. Angela choir creating a soothing atmosphere for children to fall asleep to. (See Discography)
The sheer magic of recording “Egyptian Harp Dreams” in 1997 contains a collection of Egyptian folk songs dating as far back as 896 AD truly representative of the unique mysticism of ancient Egypt. Distributed to Borders, Barnes & Noble, and the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas art museums, libraries, and yoga facilities across the United States
Independently, Christina has recorded 4 CD’s. Her CD “Harp Rock” caught the attention of Fox producer/creator (Hart Hanson) of the popular weekly show “Bones”. In 2007 Christina’s version of the ZZ Top classic Gimmie All Your Lovin’ was heard on an episode of the show.
“Harp Rock” contains 14 classic rock songs you have loved throughout the years reinterpreted by the angelic/musical talents of Christina Kline like you have never heard them before!
