Nice stuff! Christine Has an interesting style; slightly eclectic. It's R&B and soulful, and heavily acoustic, but also hip hop flavorings here & there with some pop sensibilities too. To me, "Strawberries is a bit more pop while "Fly" shows more of the R&B side. It tells a great story & she seems to make the lyrics personal. Great vocals! Nice arrangement on the music; a rhythmic momentum with a nice sway; dynamic and has texture. Good job all around. She's a breath of fresh air that the marketplace needs! - Taxi A&R

Bio

Christine Dominguez is a singer/songwriter from Newburgh, N.Y. Her style is a combination of R&B, Jazz, and Rock, but mainly falls into the category of Top 40 Popular Music. Growing up in a major city has also pulled Christine’s music in a hip-hop direction; several of her songs include beat boxing or rhyming. While she is a solo artist, Christine frequently performs with a back-up band, depending on the venue.

Christine has been playing the guitar and performing for nearly a decade, and her diverse sounds consistently draw in large audiences. Her largest audience to date exceeded 750 people, in the critically acclaimed ‘Sosnoff Theater’ at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts in Annandale, N.Y. She’s had two radio appearances on WXBC Bard College Radio Show including a live performance and interviews, which were followed by a few spins of songs on her first CD Rap It Up, and her self promoted CD Release/Senior Concert of April 06’ was a huge success. The event attracted over 200 people, and many fans drove several hours from other states to attend.

Christine holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Production and Recording from Bard College, where she recorded and produced her latest CD, Almost Acoustic, released April 28, 2006. Christine currently performs in bars, clubs, coffee houses and festivals in N.Y.C., as well as in various regions throughout N.Y. State. She’s currently expanding her regional fan base throughout NY, NJ, CT, MA and ME.

INFLUENCES

Growing up in a major city has pulled Christine's music in hip-hop direction, (which explains the beat-boxing and occational rhyming), but her roots run deep in Rock/Alternative as well.
Her influences range from Michael Jackson, Jack Johnson, Coldplay and Jeff Buckley to Alicia Keys, Lauren Hill and Eminem.
