After hearing Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" in 2002, Christine knew she had to take a stab at being a bad-ass, guitar-wielding songwriter. Initially weary of judgement, Christine would record her songs and send them to friends on AIM claiming she had "just found this tune online" ... just to get objective feedback. When the feedback was positive, she knew she had to run with it.
In 2009, Christine got an opportunity to tour with indie-pop band Now, Now. After two years of opening for bands such as Paramore and Paper Route, she decided to re-visit her solo ventures.
Born and raised in Minneapolis, MN, Christine drove solo cross-country to San Diego, CA in 2012 with her guitar and a 25 key MIDI controller. After settling into the sunshine, Christine started writing and recording for her first full-length album. Released in 2014, The Math Project is a hybrid of acoustic and synth-based pop inspired by the Cali vibe.
From the guitar-driven pop ballad Sediments" to the upbeat indie-pop single, "Coda", it's clear the evolution of her style is still unfolding. Now with distinct vocals and beat driven melodies, she aims to take the listener on a journey through all the emotions. From car bopping to melancholic, each song peels back at the layers we all share, making for a relatable, easy-listening experience. Keep your ears open for a unique blend of acoustic and electronic elements in her new heartfelt single, "Warmth".
