Biography

We are all Angels of War," Christine
Martucci would tell you as she marches triumphantly to the release of
her fourth studio album Angels of War. Raised by a military
father and feminist mother, Christine is no stranger to adversity. Her
autobiographical EP tells tales of her struggles to find solace as a
lesbian during her 10-year stint in the US Army at the height of the
"Don't Ask Don't Tell" period, to her battle to recover and regain
sanity after an attempt to take her own life, to her spiritual
awakening, and finally - to finding peace.

Christine was raised in the small town of Readington, NJ. Throughout
her life she looked to music as her comfort and escape. Over the past
decade, she has refined a style that marries both raw grit and tender
warmth akin to Janis Joplin and Chrissie Hynde. She has cultivated a
home for herself within the historic music scene of Asbury Park and her
grass-roots following of loyal supporters have dubbed themselves the
"Tucci Train". Christine has opened for national recording acts
including Gavin DeGraw, Michele Branch, Patty Smythe and Scandal, and
Mountain.


Most recently, she teamed up with two time Grammy Award Winner Marc
Swersky (Joe Cocker, Hilary Duff, Roger Daltrey) and Brielle Brown
(Gedeon Luke, Jacquie Lee). Together they wrote the confessional Angels of War
over a four-month period. Topping off the record are two songs
co-written by renowned songwriter Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Joni
Mitchell, Joe Cocker). The EP was recorded live at Shorefire Recording
Studios in Long Branch, NJ and produced by Swersky. It features the
musicianship of Steve Holley (Paul McCartney and The Wings) on drums,
Vincent Mascolo (Tunnels to Holland), and top NYC session keyboardist
Alan Markley, and her guitar tour-de-force, Jersey girl, Carolyn Marosy.


At the root of Angels of War is a story of survival,
resilience, and love. It's an honest portrayal of a woman who served her
country and is now serving her heart.


Angels of War will be released in April 2015.


Lyrics

I'LL Stop the Rain

Written By: Christine Martucci/Anthony Krizan

She walked along the heavy road
Tried to decipher were
Her trail went cold
She came along a broken man
She pulled her heart of
Of a box and she said
I found love and Jesus
And everything else that he pleases

CHORUS:
With just one look she stole his heart
With every touch she healed his scars
And that’s all that he needed
Just make a wish Ill se it through
Cause baby when your
Feeling blue

Another place another town
Another ride on the merry go round
He smiles at her and takes her hand
With her tears she heals
This broken man
They found love and freedom
And everything else
That he pleases

With just one look she stole his heart
With every touch she heals his scars
And that’s all that he needed
Just make a wish I’ll see it through
Cause baby when your feeling blue
I’ll stop the rain for you

Bridge: It aint easy when your heart is on your sleeve it aint easy
You can find no guarantee
When all you been searching for is right at your feet

With just one look she stole his heart
With every touch she healed his scars
And that’s all that he needed
Just make a wish Ill see it through
Cause baby when your
Feeling blue
I’ll stop the rain for me
