Described as ‘the full package’, Christie is a vibrant multi-instrumental and award-winning singer-songwriter. She was awarded the CMC Awards for ‘New Oz Artist of the Year’ in 2015 and ‘Female Artist of the Year’ in 2018 and was the recipient of the 2016 Golden Guitar Award for ‘New Talent of the Year.’
In 2019, she released her third studio album, Broken Lines which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Album Chart and topped the ARIA Charts at #1 on the Country Album Chart. The first single was the fun and fresh, Hot Hot Kiss which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Charts. The remix also debuted at #1 on the iTunes Dance Charts, making Christie the first Australian artist to have #1 hits on both iTunes charts. She released the final single, Old Country Soul off the album last September. She has 13 top 5 radio releases to her name.
Christie has toured relentlessly with her own dates across Australia and New Zealand and is quite the regular face on the festival scene. She has also been a part of national tours with Lee Kernaghan for four years, opening the show and playing piano and mandolin as part of his band. Earlier tours have included two years with Aussie legend Jon English as the lead female vocalist and musician on ‘The Rock Revolution’ tour, ‘The Girls of Country’ tour with Amber Lawrence and Aleyce Simmonds, plus ‘This Crazy Life’ tour with The Wolfe Brothers.
After the challenges of COVID-19, Christie decided to kick off this year with a light-hearted, feel-good single called Kiss About It – the first from her upcoming album.
Christie says, “Kiss About It is a fun, catchy up tempo about how you and your partner can get through the tough times with just a simple kiss. I think after the year we’ve all had, people will have spent much more time together than usual. For any couple there are bound to be moments along the way when you don’t always agree. Kiss About It is exactly as the title says, focusing on the good times, kissing and making up with your partner.”
