"Christine Young Band - 3/12/04"

"Young and band bring their unbridled country rock to Jubitz for five nights straight as Young leads her band through rollicking Americana, roots and country sweetly melded."

"Christine Young Band - 12/19/03"

"Young's band has a grip on a wide variety of American roots styles, often prompting audiences to dance, but just as able to give them a sadder shade of country."

"Christine Young Band - 2003"

"Christine Young Band could've been the house band in all of those Honky Tonk movies you loved when you were a kid. You know, 'Every Which Way But Loose,' 'Urban Cowboy' or 'Honeysuckle Rose.' Backed by a first rate band and wielding one of the most unmistakable voices around, Christine Young tells a whimsical tale of loss, be it love, husbands or breakfast."

Bio

From Jubitz Ponderosa Lounge to the Red Eyed Fly, Christine Young bridges the many faces of Americana music.

Christine established her first band in 2002 in Portland OR.  She spent the next two years playing regularly in Oregon's favorite Americana and Country bars. In 2004 Christine left Portland and moved to Austin Texas to further develop her county rock style.

Young delivers what the Oregonian newspaper once described as "Unbridled Country Rock". With her signature red cowboy boots, Christine's musical style intimates what Nashville producer Mark Oliverius describes as a combination of Chrissie Hynde and Dwight Yoakam.

With three CD's already in her back pocket, Christine's musical vision is faithfully portrayed. The playful and fiery flavor of  "If I Go To Heaven" showcases Christine's strong honky tonk edge, "Nobody But Yourself " maintains a powerful country rock flavor, and "Under That Moon " demonstrates Christine's ability to perform in a traditional country style. It is this variety and combination of different influences that create Christine's "Nashville country style" as described by Sound Engineer Robbie T of Rock Creek Sound.

No matter what the night brings, Young doesn't miss a beat as she belts out hour upon hour of what she describes as "Full Throttle Honky Tonk." Her voice knows no limits and together with her band, can sustain hours of high-powered performance, keeping the audience out on the dance floor and leaving them begging for more! Her song writing touches on universal themes and some topics not so commonly discussed. Never the less, she tells it like it is and isn't afraid to sing out.

Be it traditional or alternative, Christine Young delivers music wrapped up tight in a wickedly fun package. Don't miss the unveiling at each night's show. It's good for the soul and your own hidden agenda.
