Szabo's cafe cool

CHANCES are you have never heard of American singer Christiane Szabo but you may have heard one of her songs while sipping a latte.

Szabo has never been to Australia but credits Sydney music company Foghorn Records for giving her a break.

Foghorn heard her music over the Internet and selected her song, Come Away With Me, for one of its Sounds Like Cafe compilations, which are played in more than 1200 cafes around Australia.

What does Christiane have in common with Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland, Paul McCartney, and Cole Porter? She’s a gifted singer, a gifted songwriter, and a lefty. It ain’t easy to find left handed guitars, and it’s harder still to find left handed guitar players – in fact – she’s the only left handed female rocker she knows. A rarity to say the least – Christiane’s extraordinary style is unique and arresting, perhaps in part, due to her unique perspective as a left handed musician. Christiane’s music has been compared to many diverse artists, including: Alanis, The Dixie Chicks, and Bjork – go figure!

After several years playing the New York City circuit, upon the encouragement of her world class cellist, Dave Eggar, Christiane decided it was time to make a record. ‘Saltwater’, her debut album, was co-produced by Dave Eggar (recent solo release, "Left of Blue," Grammy nomination for production on David Chesky's "Chesky: Area 31"), Nik Chinboukas (Chris Caffery, Blow Up Hollywood), and Christiane Szabo. ‘Saltwater’ was recorded at Spin Studios in Astoria, Queens, engineered by Nik Chinboukas, mixed by Yury Anisonyan at Optimum Sound Recording in Los Angeles, CA (Tia Sprocket, The Creins), and mastered by Glenn Schick at Glenn Schick Mastering, Atlanta, GA (Ludacris, YingYang Twins, Montell Jordan). The record features players Dave Eggar (Dave Sanborn, Manhattan Transfer, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Evanescence), Ian Riggs (One Ring Zero, Ethan Lipton), Shane Shanahan (Yo-Yo Ma – Silk Road Ensemble, Sonny Fortune, Philip Glass), and Marcus Wolf (Thalia, Desmond Child).

Elements of country, bluegrass, folk and rock combine with an explosive energy creating a truly original sound. A contemporary troubadour, Christiane's lyrics relate intimate details and ‘Saltwater’, her debut album, is a moving collection of the breadth and depth of her enormous talent.
