Christina Green is a songwriter, composer, performer and multi-instrumentalist working in both the folk/acoustic and contemporary classical music contexts. Spanning styles from folk/rock to cabaret/chanson, her songs convey stories, observations and experiences with polished lyrics and guitar work, strong images and storytelling, and are complemented in live performances by occasional instrumental pieces. As a composer Christina writes in a range of styles, with recent works for piano combining jazz and classical elements.
“Christina sums up the 21st century lyrically and musically in 2 verses and a chorus. Her ability to make every word count is astonishing ”
