Midwestern songwriter Miss Christine has released her Conversion album, and we’re excited to hear it here on GIGsoup!
Conversion is an album that seems to create a home for the wide ranges of genres that influence Miss Christine’s music. There are nods to indie rock, blues, soul, punk and more while Christine always wraps these sounds up into catchy melodies and toe-tapping grooves. Her identity as a queer musician is woven throughout these songs that tackle her realization of being genderqueer, her quest to find contentment and learning to build the skills to stand up for herself.
Miss Christine now lives Iowa but previously spent a number of years in Nashville where she worked as a session and touring bass player. You may well have heard Miss Christine playing bass on Lucy Dacus’ acclaimed album, No Burden or gracing the stage with artists including ELEL and Kalie Shorr.
Fans of Miss Christine in the northeastern US can catch her on tour over the next month, with the kickoff show being this Friday at Rockwood Music Hall, New York City. Tickets and further info for all dates are available here.
