ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2009 FAR-West Premiere Showcase Artist!
2002 Kerrville New Folk Finalist!
2004 South Florida Folk Finalist!

"All we can ask from an artist is for him or her to tell us the truth. Listening to Christie is like sneaking a peak into his personal diary - there's honesty in every note, every riff, and every word." So says Dreamworks SKG writer/producer Phil Swann (John Berry, Kristin Garner) after handling the production chores for Phil Christie's new studio release SUMMERSTOWN.

Recorded in Nashville at County Q Productions, SUMMERSTOWN features 11 newly penned Christie compositions. The album includes stellar performances by world class musicians such as keyboardist Dane Bryant (Clint Black) and guitarist George Marinelli (Bruce Hornsby and The Range, Bonnie Raitt). The title track will be released to Country radio across Canada on March 28th, 2005 via Music Media Network promotions.

Growing up in Toronto, Canada, Christie set his sights on a career in music due to the influence of legendary singer/songwriters Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Diamond, John Denver, and James Taylor.

In 1995, he followed the path blazed by many other artists, and made his way to Los Angeles. Since his arrival, he has steadily built his own loyal following of fans, performing his songs at coffeehouses and concert venues throughout California and Colorado.

In November 1999, Christie was tapped to recreate John Denver's vocals for the CBS TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story. He landed the part on the personal recommendation of Denver's longtime producer Milt Okun. A compilation of Christie's early Canadian recordings, entitled Beginnings, was released in 1999. In the fall of 2000, Christie composed and recorded the song "Skeleton" for the soundtrack of the theatrical motion picture Jacks or Better starring Jack Wallace (Boogie Nights) and Meshach Taylor (Designing Women).

Margie Hoff

Smooth voice, great songs, a consumate entertainer
Phil Christie's clear, smooth voice and impressive range are wonderfully displayed in this nicely arranged album. From the frivilous 'Karl the Koala' and the spooky 'Skeleton' to the poignant 'Mother's Day', Christie proves himself the consumate entertainer.

Fantastic Folk Originals! Traditional Style, still sounding original
Phil Christie's experience and strong vocal ability can be clearly heard in his music. Hundreds of live shows and a variety of experiences have a way of polishing a singer. I was very impressed with his movie and television musical experience but more so with his clear voice and descriptive lyrics. Creme rises to the top and so has Christie.
