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 ”

News - February-March 2023
The later part of 2022 brought a flow of performances including a great time of music and reconnection at the Yass Irish and Celtic Music Festival in September, a return to the Lomond Acoustica in October, and a ukulele-focused appearance at the Melbourne Composers’ League’s Elbow Room concert in October. It has been great to see live music life coming back.
I am excited to be getting 2023 rolling with an appearance with the Darebin Songwriters’ Guild in February, and to be involved in the Melbourne Ukulele Festival, taking place in Northcote on March 17-19, with an appearance at Bar 303 on Saturday March 18. Ukulele recordings are in progress, and I look forward to releasing a new song on Bandcamp to coincide with this performance. I have also now made Some Days/Life I Can Live, which features ukulele in quite a few of the tracks, available on Bandcamp (link above).
All my available CDs are available for purchase (as physical items) in the Store section here. They can also be purchased through Goldenrod (click on the fifth/final music note icon/link at top of website pages - full album and individual track downloads).
With best wishes for 2023
