With a voice as powerful as it is sultry and sweet, singer/songwriter Christine Sweeney deftly handles poppy and playful without sacrificing genuine emotion to create her version of indie blues pop. Her sometimes gritty, sometimes sugary vocals soar over a rhythmic guitar to build songs that are heavily focused on the feel of the lyrics, but also illustrate that she’s no stranger to complexities in harmony.
Christine has built a reputation as a veteran performer throughout her native Long Island. She has opened for national acts such as Graham Parker, Jill Sobule, China Crisis and Nine Days. Folk DJ Joltin Joe Pszonek (of Radio Nowhere) described her as a singer/songwriter who “will seduce you with her voice and then belt you with the blues. Her intelligent songwriting skills reveal a strong understanding of life and love. Streetwise with a tender heart, Christine is on my list of up and coming talents!”
With an impressive repertoire of material and an incredible personality, Christine is an ideal choice for Ceremonies/Cocktail Hours and also any party just looking for an impressive, quality acoustic entertainer that knows how to create a vibe and keep it interesting and fun for hours.
