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 which won Album of the Year at the 2007 Vancouver's Island Music Awards.
With two brilliantly crafted, self-written albums to her credit (including her 2004 breakthrough album, Take Me Home) her latest music collection, Push, received critical acclaim and scored top honors in the ‘07 Gospel Music Association of Canada Covenant Awards for the edgy realism of her "Push" music video. On Push her songs reveal a depth of feeling and insight with concise, pop poetics and delicious melodic hooks.
With the dawn of 2008, Christine Evans is crossing both musical and territorial borders. She has signed in the U.S. for innovative management/developmental career tracking under the umbrella of Showdown Management, whose client roster includes GRAMMY-nominated international breakout band sensation, Paramore.
With the alliance comes a studio production deal with GRAMMY and multi-Dove winning producer, Matt Bronleewe, whose more than 20 million career units include production and songwriter credits for artists as diverse as Australia’s pop sensation Natalie Imbruglia, and Christian music’s Jars of Clay and Michael W. Smith.
The results of Christine’s partnering in studio with the genius of Bronleewe and her own passion for creating music with a message that tears down all walls is being released as a highly-anticipated EP “Standing on the Edge.”
Christine Evans voice is, above all, an instrument for change.
