Christine Anderson discovered the piano at nine and by eleven had soloed with her first symphony. In 2004, she recorded a 5-song EP, Pianist Envy, with Grammy nominees Derek Nakamoto and Craig Burbidge, and went on to win the Los Angeles Music Award for Composer of the Year by a unanimous vote.
With a impressive catalogue of original material, an extensive repertoire of classical masterpieces, and a keen ability to compose hilarious songs about random people in the audience, right on the spot, Christine began gigging steadily around Los Angeles, playing to diverse crowds of enraptured music lovers, professional musicians, and curious rock stars, who had never seen anything like her. She quickly earned a reputation for giving sensational live performances & passionately "serving up her soul on a plate of piano."
It was the idea of capturing this emotionally charged "live" vibe that led to the making of Live Summer Session. Recorded live in a single gut wrenching take, Christine's inspired breakthrough album is being hailed by critics as "creative brilliance," "as raw and real as music gets."
With a red hot stage presence and the credibility that comes with writing all her own music - live and impromptu - the former child prodigy is amassing a passionate following with her soulful voice, heartbreaking songwriting, and world class piano playing. She has appeared in special features on ABC, MTV, and Much Music, but has turned away traditionally coveted "record deals" to remain independent and in complete artistic control of her music.
Following the breakthrough success of Live Summer Session, Christine traveled to southern Oregon's pristine Rogue River Valley where she has penned upwards of 100 new songs. She will return to Los Angeles in the spring of 2008 to record her debut studio effort at jazz pianist Gregg Karukas' Nightowl Studios. An instrumental record of impromptu piano solos is also in the works.
