Christine Lavin writes and sings beautifully crafted songs—but that makes it sound like work, and she makes it sound like play. Her songs tell funny, poignant stories—about “Sensitive New Age Guys,” about “The Kind of Love You Never Recover From”—and when you think about them afterwards, you realize that underneath the cleverness there’s a questioning intelligence that grapples with the big questions—like what to do “When You’re Single at Christmastime.” The New York Times has called her a “comic observer of contemporary manners” and she certainly delivers, with giddy stories, righteous rants, and witty originals—not to mention the occasional perfectly pitched cover, like Petula Clark’s “Downtown” or The Killers’ “Human.”
Christine has released more than 20 solo albums, including her latest, Cold Pizza for Breakfast, and nine compilations showcasing the work of dozens of songwriters she has championed in her role as host of Slipped Disks on XM radio and as occasional host of City Folk Sunday Breakfast on the Fordham University radio station. She’s won the Kate Wolf Memorial Award, five ASCAP composer awards, the National Association of Independent Record Distributors Award for Album of the Year, and, most recently, a 2012 New York City Nightlife Award given to the best concert and cabaret performers. Her shows are a real treat—catch her at the Freight if you can!
