NEW MUSIC: Christina Courtin – Varsity
by Gregorio Vincent
Buffalo, NY native and trained violinist Christina Courtin has released the first single from her sophomore release Varsity. It was recorded in Brooklyn, NY and Austin, TX with the help of Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead, White Rabbits) and Ryan Scott. Felt and heard as a new chapter in her musical life, this record has more of the real Christina in it… attitude, edge, and ROCK.
When Christina isn’t writing and singing her own material, she performs regularly as a side man and session musician in and around NYC. She has contributed violin/viola work to Fun., Dirty Projectors, Sara Watkins, The Knights, Marianne Faithful, Yo-Yo Ma, Sufjan Stevens, Antony and the Johnsons, Marc Ribot’s Film Noir Project, Iron and Wine, and Teddy Thompson.
