Win Christine Evans T-Shirts ... TODAY!
Coming off her nation-wide Canadian tour last summer, singer-songwriter Christine Evans has produced a second CD that builds upon the critically acclaimed strengths of her recording debut.
Push features a song cycle of the young musician’s well-crafted, whip-smart original songs driven by a dozen, organic and pulsing soundscapes.
The 16-year-old Victoria, B.C., native co-produced the new CD with veteran studio wizard Tom Hall, who has worked with a Pantheon of pop, rock and jazz stars. Hall says, “Just when I think I have a grasp of Christine’s talents, she surprises anew. Each time we work together she reveals exciting new facets of her craft.” He goes on to say, “Her music is compelling, powerful and timeless.”
The young musician wrote all of the songs on her debut recording, many before she was a teenager. She’s been writing songs since she was seven, and her songwriting continues to develop by leaps and bounds. On Push her songs reveal a depth of feeling and insight with concise, pop poetics and delicious melodic hooks.
Called “a very gifted singer-songwriter” by one of her mentors, Peter, Paul & Mary folk great Peter Yarrow, Christine continues to work on her singing with famous, New York-based vocal coach Bill Riley. Riley has coached Celine Dion, Faith Hill, and members of the Metropolitan Opera, and Evans has taken his instruction and her studies at Interlochen to heart on Push. Dazzling displays of vocal pyrotechnics punctuate her haunting, powerful readings.
“Why Can’t It Be Christmas Everyday?” is an original holiday track written by Walter Afanasieff and Jay Landers. Afanasieff co-wrote the smash hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” with Mariah Carey. Bianca also brings new life to the Debby Boone classic “You Light Up My Life,” and the R. Kelly hit “I Believe I Can Fly.” A stirring cover of Bette Midler’s “The Rose” showcases Bianca’s incredible vocal capacity.
