"The Local Buzz Entertainment Magazine"

"Lenee's live show spirits vocals that are as soothing as a mother singing to heal her child but create the energy and passion of a rollercoaster screaming off the tracks." - Jason Collins, The Local Buzz Mag, Article by Phil Grech

"Tim Reynolds Tour Manger Says..."

"She is somewhere between Tim Reynolds instrumentally and vocally has moments that remind me of Ani Difranco."
-Fluffy, Tim Reynolds Tour Manager - Fluffy, TR Tour Manager

"Creative Loafing Review"

"...She bounds from folk to classical, while dropping jazz, blues and jam-band-friendly funk lines along the way. She even wilds out on occasion and unleashes the hot, heavy licks that make classical rock fans drool..." WT, Tampa Creative Loafing - Wade

"Performance Review"

"...Her guitar work liquifies me, even vaporizes me and finally, it makes me whole again. Solid yet fluid, still one with her strumming, I can't help but ride the waves her sounds induce. Watching and listening to her play is intoxicating. It entrances and moves me into dance... The energy she radiates through song washes over me, fills me, gushes from me so that I feel as if I could flood the venue, drowning every blessed soul with the highest concentration of pure love and harmony that could ever flow from a human being." -Jennifer Vera - Jennifer Vera

"Tampa Tribune"

...She has got the chops- confident in the classical style, fluid in jazz, versed in pop and rock. She tackles solo concert repertoire, jams in a band, sings homemade ballads and strums what sound like rivers of rhythm." -Kurt Loft, Tampa Tribune - Kurt Loft, Tampa Tribune

Christie Lenee is an astounding songwriter and eclectic guitarist with radiant energy and a brilliant harmonic approach. Her music moves seamlessly among genres ranging from funky dance jams to virtuoso classical guitar, fusing funk, folk, jazz, rock, bluegrass, classical, and percussive loops. The singer/ songwriter has performed at a broad array of festivals and venues in the southeast, the west coast, and even Taiwan,
and has opened for many international artists including Tim Reynolds from Dave Matthews Band, Jeff Coffin from Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Oteil Burbridge from the Allman Brothers, and Marty Balin from the Jefferson Airplane. Lenee has also played live several times on WMNF 88.5 FM in Tampa, FL, "The Scene Radio" on 95.7 FM in Daytona Beach, FL, and opened for Journey and Steely Dan at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater, FL.

The full band, Christie Lenee and the Funkgrass Groove, blends poetic lyrics and expressive dance movement with high-energy solos and breakdown grooves. Imagine a melding of Jimi Hendrix's guitar, vocals reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, and the energy and lyrical genius of Ani Difranco partnered with a group of virtuosic jazz musicians. Souls shine and inspiration arises...hands paint rainbows of sound... and songs are colored with passion in waves of harmonic energy.
