Christine Lavin emerged out of the crowded New York City songwriter scene of the '80s with a style that distinguished her from her peers. First, her songs were overwhelmingly concerned with contemporary romantic mores (that scary, uncertain world of "relationships," "commitments," and "biological clocks"). Second, while her takes on this subject could sometimes be sentimental or even maudlin, more often they were humorous. "If You Need Space, Go to Utah" was the first track on her second recording, a 1983 EP called Husbands And Wives. (Her first album, 1982's Absolutely Live, was out of print until 2000, when it was reissued on CD.) In 1984, Lavin self-released her first full-length studio album, Future Fossils, which included both her serious and comic numbers, notably "Damaged Goods" (what people start to feel like after enough failed relationships) and "Don't Ever Call Your Sweetheart by His Name" (how difficult it is to remember people's names after enough failed relationships). Christine received a 2012 NYC Nightlife Award given annually to the best concert and cabaret performers. In November 2011 her book COLD PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST: A MEM-WHA?? won the 43rd Annual ASCAP Deems Taylor Award for excellence in non-fiction writing about pop music. Christine has also won five ASCAP composer awards, the Backstage Bistro Award for Best NYC Singer/Songwriter Of The Year, The Kate Wolf Memorial Award, and her album Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind won Album Of The Year from the National Association Of Independent Record Distributors. Last November, she released her 21st solo album, If You're Drunk, You Cannot Buy A Puppy. We are delighted to present her here.
Originally from Birmingham, England, Laine was an essential member of both The Moody Blues (that's his voice on "Go Now") and Wings, the band he formed with Paul McCartney in 1971. During the ten years that Wings existed, Laine provided lead and rhythm guitars, lead and backing vocals, keyboards, bass guitar, and woodwinds, as well as writing or co-writing some of their best-loved songs. He released solo recordings all through the '70s and '80s, and moved to the U.S. in the 1990s, where he continued to tour and record. This is always a great show don't miss out!
