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 snapshots of everyday life, 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 ”

It has been great to do a couple of small live performances since restrictions eased in Melbourne. Still excited to have found a new online home for my CDs, Goldenrod Music. Links to the main page and to my own page are up, music note symbols #4 and #5 in the link icons. I have also re-released my 2004 CD Mindless Fun on Bandcamp, and hope you will visit this new page (see links) and consider following me there to help me to build it.
It has been a great year for writing, ukulele practice, music Zoom sessions and more. Hoping 2022 will bring better times for us all. Wishing all a good Solstice/Christmas/New Year time, and good luck with finding the balance between freedom and care as we live with the Omicron Covid wave.

An in-depth interview in which Christina talks about her songwriting journey has been done by UK-based musician, writer and artist Walki Freedreamer, who has worked with Christina as a musician/collaborator and sound engineer. The interview has been published in Amplified, a journal for music lovers in British Mensa. Walki has made the interview available online at https://lordwalkiwolf.livejournal.com/18819.html.
A new CD release, Melbourne Composers' League - Celebrating Twenty Years, includes a group of four short piano pieces written and performed by Christina from her Suite from Sighting Silence, Sounding Image, a work mostly composed on collaborative residency at the Bundanon Arts Trust, Shoalhaven Region, NSW, with visual artist Dr Flossie Peitsch, in 2012. The CD can be purchased online at http://www.melbournecomposersleague.com/celebrating-twenty-years/.
