"Empowerment Now"

Christine Santelli: Any Better Time (Vizztone 388010:41:35) *** 1/2
On her seventh Album, this New Yorker successfully expands her personal vision of the blues with several strains of country music, including Cajun.  The grain in Santelli's voice lends her singing an edge of earnestness that fits the appealing tunes she wrote about giving in to despair ("Down in the Valley") and juping off the "fast track" (Lily's Song"). Not a blustery guitarist herself, Santelli calls on Popa Chubby to incinerate the blues-rock breakout "Ode to Bill."  Her ambitious "For You" matches the song character's emotional health to surprise giddy cirucus music.


Bluegrass Special 

Christine has been featured in this month's issue of the Bluegrass Special, in a superb, in-depth biographical article written by David McGee.

McGee's long career and exceptional skills in music journalism have lead him to writing about many of the the world's legendary entertainers, including biographies on such celebrated musical figures as BB King, Carl Perkins, and most lately, Steve Earle.

"When Christine Santelli sings you can see the pain, the joy, the passion, and the experience of all women in the world all at one time. Its' deep. It's soulful. And its meaningful. She has the wisdom of the ages in her voice and you can see it right there on her face. She's a revelation."-Willie Nile
