"Miss Christine's new album shows her mature side"

If Christine Moad seems young, that’s because she is – she graduated from the Berklee School of Music in Boston this spring. But the Allison native has mature musical chops. Her new album, "Dichotomy," released May 24, is her second solo release. In it she displays the talents that got her to the prestigious school and what she learned there.

This is a far different album from her 2012 release, "Monkeyin' Around." It’s more complex and richly layered. Part pop and post-alternative rock, "Dichotomy" features hooky guitar licks ranging from bright and bouncing in a power-pop style in “Perfect” to slow and blues-funk inspired in “Awkward Situations.”

Moad's voice is melodic and almost dreamy at times, but it’s her bass playing that holds together much of the five-track album. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who know Moad – it’s her main instrument. The back and forth between the crisp drums and fuzzy, deep-booming bass in “Epiphany” gives the song a mesmerizing rhythm.

The whole album shows Miss Christine’s innate talent but adds a layer of maturity and skill. Some might say, because of her age, she’s on the cusp of good things. "Dichotomy" proves she’s already there. - John Molseed

Bio

In spite of growing up surrounded by cornstalks in the middle of Iowa, Miss Christine always knew that she wanted to be a performer. At the age of twelve, she picked up the electric bass and has been hooked ever since. Opening for artists such as Eric Church, John Carter Cash, and Keystone Revisited, playing with Jefferson Starship, and performing in front of Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Miss Christine has done just that.

Raised on a musical diet of psychedelic rock from the ‘60s and ‘70s, funk, R&B, and soul, Miss Christine has assimilated these genres into her own unique style of bass playing and singing. Her second EP “Dichotomy” not only showcases her bass playing and vocals but also her distinct songwriting style. In 2015, her band played Gentlemen of the Road in Waverly, IA with Mumford and Sons.
