Christina Courtin Releases New Self-titled Album On KJune 23, 2009

New York (Top40 Charts/ Nonesuch Records) - Christina Courtin's Nonesuch Records self-titled debut album is set for release on June 23, 2009.

The album is co-produced by Christina Courtin, jazz bassist Greg Cohen, and her frequent band mate singer/guitarist Ryan Scott. Cohen and Scott also contribute bass and guitar to the recording. Several acclaimed musicians join them, including keyboardist Benmont Tench, drummer Jim Keltner, pedal-steel player Greg Leisz, Punch Brothers violinist Gabe Witcher, and multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion.

In addition to her vocals, Courtin wrote all the songs on the album. She also plays viola and toy piano on 'Hedonistic Paradise' and provides string arrangements on 'Green Jay,' 'Bundah,' and 'Rainy.'

Of the recording Courtin states, 'The records that I love the most are the ones that are full of life and energy - and that doesn't in any way mean perfection. They have real feeling to them. One of the things I wanted to achieve with my record was for it to be a real world of its own, with songs that take you somewhere else.'

'It isn't hard to decode the allure of this burgeoning local artist. Her songs are at once old-fashioned, classic pop ... and garnished with strange instrumental trimmings. Onstage, she lunges into her music with a spasmodic fearlessness that most vocalists reserve for the shower.' - Time Out New York
