Christie Lenée
Christie Lenée
Christie Lenée’s unique guitar work is often compared to visionaries like Michael Hedges, Joni Mitchell and Dave Matthews- fusing folky/funky playfulness with pop/rock inspired songs and virtuosic guitar compositions. She is, as Skope Magazine states, “a refreshing burst of unrestrained love and feeling… It’s simply a joy to listen to her spirit break free.”
Christie has been seen many times on stage with Tim Reynolds (guitarist for Dave Matthews Band) and a stellar cast of musicians including Amy Ray (Indigo Girls), Jeff Coffin, and Stanley Jordan. Her compositions have been showcased at the NAMM Show in Anaheim and Nashville, live on National Television and Radio, plus various festivals and venue performances across the US, Canada and Taiwan.
Christie’s most recent album “Live at Hideaway Cafe” was a Finalist for “Best CD of 2014” for the Indie Acoustic Project Awards and received raving reviews by music fans across the country. The album created a compelling sonic journey through mountains of dynamics, harmonic textures, upbeat grooves and consciously uplifting lyrics. Her song “Love Who You Are” from this album was nominated for a 2016 Posi Award in the category “Songs for Personal Transformation.”
Christie's song "Before I Go" was recently selected as "Best Song" in Americana Music for the Academia Awards. She is currently completing the recording and mixing of her new album and will be back on the road once it's completed. Come visit her on the website and Facebook for daily updates, videos and more!
