From smoky front bars (back in the days when front bars were smoky) to intimate café’s, festivals, to wineries, renowned live music venues and venues that should never try to host live music, Christina has been dishing up her rootsy folk-pop styles. Her live gigs are always fuelled by down to earth stories, sweet and simple pop melodies, folky harmonies and rootsy-great energy. Low key guitar style is the backdrop to big vocals and hooky lyrical songs that track all the edges of this human experience.
