News Reviews
“A soloist with the potential to make a significant impact at a national level… She has a strong sense of rhythm and her playing has a pronounced percussive edge . . . with a strong powerful voice, which cuts across a wide octave range and boasts gobsmacking sustain”
Tony Hillier Barfly 14 Feb 2002

“Cairns singer guitarist and stomp box player Carinda Christie” has “an earthiness that should captivate lovers of soulful pop, folk or rock. . . an accomplished performer, who lists a support act for Collective Soul at the recent Goodwill Games among her credits. . . a refreshing change from so many moulded mainstream performers today.”
Aldwyn Altuney, Gold Coast Sun Sept 26 2001

“Carinda’s charismatic out there, in-your-face attitude and energetic fusion of pop, rock and folk are a refreshing change of pace in an era of manufactured pop music…”
The Coffs Harbour Advocate, Thursday, November 15 2001

“. . . Carinda Christie, performing her originals, channelled the spirit of Ms Janis Joplin in one of the most passionate performances seen in a very long time. Truly jaw dropping.”
Sharon Lenehan, Barfly July 2000

“This chick doesn’t play around with a note, she smacks it right in the guts!”
Harry Slee, Barfly Dec 2000
