ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Christine Havrilla's latest release, "Velocity", features her six piece band and an eclectic sound. Listeners hear an edgy rapid start to the album. At the same time, Havrilla is introspective as sounds range from raw electric guitar to the subtle sounds of violin.

"Velocity" reveals Christine's pure musicianship and devotion to her craft as she co-produced the album. With Duane Large (drums), Bill Gallagher (bass), Gretchen Schultz (backing vocals), Wendy Fuhr (backing vocals & violin), Bob Beach (harmonica), Havrilla's "Velocity" offers a full, firmly established sound. Along with her earlier albums, Christine has a collection of songs that clearly define her as a pop singer/songwriter at the peak of her form.

As noted by the Princeton Packet, "Angst takes a left turn to upbeat and fun." Dean Sciarra from ItsAboutMusic.com described the personal connection when he said, "We get inside her head with each successive entry from her musical diary…And if she didn't possess that rare ability to make her songs so easily accessible, memorable and heartfelt, then you wouldn't come back for more. And you will come back for more."

Host of Concerts at Bonnie Branch, Ryan Simmons, hailed Christine's abilities by saying, "she is such an all-around musician. She sings, she writes, and she plays. Whether she's drawing you into the pictures her songs paint or carrying you away with her guitar playing, she cannot fail to impress."

Nate Bauer from Blue Weekly says, "Christine offers the kind of pop-guitar songwriting that definitely should not be overlooked. With her recent released CD, "Ruby Red", Havrilla has shifted from the typical Lilith Fair pigeonhole into her own enjoyable sound."

Christine took the East Coast by storm with thousands of listeners at Musikfest, Philadelphia AIDS Walk, Penn State Arts Fest, and New York's Central Park and followed up these performances with appearances on CN8's "Your Morning" and NBC's 10!. Christine also performs sellout shows in venerable venues such as Philadelphia's The Point, Tin Angel, World Cafe Live! and has had well received performances in the Kimmel Center. Making frequent stops at showcase clubs and major outdoor festivals, Christine has established herself throughout the East coast, Midwest, and South. Her material has meanwhile been gaining massive momentum online including web-based accomplishments such as

* "One of the Top Ten Indie Artists" - Advocate Magazine Jan. 2006
* "Loneliest Girl" hit #2 on GarageBand.com's Pop Rock Reviewer's Pick in December of 2005
* Featured Artist on Whole Wheat Radio, Alaska in February, 2005
* Garageband.com's "Song of the Day" for "Here I Am" & "Every Now & Then" in 2004
* Her MP3.com-only CD, "Halo," shot to No. 1 on the folk/rock album chart
* She received MP3.com's 2001 Blockbuster Award for Favorite Female Rock Artist
* Seven songs, "Set Me Free", "Let Me," "Diamonds", "Four Leaf Clover", "Rest of Your Life", "Another River" and "In the End" have had multi-day stays at the No. 1 national singles slot at MP3.com, and she had an incredible seven songs in the top 40 at once.

The positive recognition for Christine's work doesn't stop online. She was a finalist for Philadelphia City Paper's 2002 Best Folk Artist/Group award, and received two grants in two consecutive years from The National Endowment for the Arts for its Meet the Composer series. She has opened for and shared the stages of venues and major festivals with such acts as Jeffrey Gaines, Jill Sobule, Melissa Etheridge, Janis Ian, Antigone Rising, Tempest, Grey Eye Glances, Train, Melissa Ferrick, Catie Curtis, Don McLean, Heart, Sara Lee, and Sally Taylor. She also composed and performed the music for the Johnny Cash Franklin Bible Session, a spoken word recording, and had the song "Sing" chosen for the GoGirls 2005 Radio Compilation CD.

Self-taught and self-disciplined, Havrilla wins crowds over wherever she goes with her musical innovation, heartfelt lyrics, and sparkling personality, and her guitar a mere extension of herself. Christine lives up to the moniker bestowed upon her by Dena Marchiony of the Philadelphia Songwriters Project, "the quintessential pop-rock goddess." Philadelphia Magazine simply states, "She rocks!"

So infectious, you'll be singing these songs all day
I like the use of the full band here and each song has its own character. Very good use of the many styles of Christina on this new CD. She really has some good velocity on this CD and I believe her live performances are nothing short of perfection as well.
