Christie’s unique guitar work and profound instrumental compositions are well described as ‘Michael Hedges meets Joni Mitchell and Dave Matthews.’ Among the vast community of fingerstyle and tapping guitarists, her niche is the integration of melodic pop lyricism with catchy hooks that excite both modern commercial listeners and classic purists. With a menu of percussive and sonic effects, and larger than life sounding instruments, her solo shows embody layers of orchestral elements with a wide array of dynamics and harmonic textures.
Christie’s pieces have been showcased at the NAMM Show in Anaheim and Nashville, live on National Television and Radio, and on stage with artists such as Tim Reynolds (guitarist for Dave Matthews Band), Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel, Amy Ray from the Indigo Girls, and Stanley Jordan to name a few. Her most recent album “STAY” was one of three finalists for “Best CD of 2016” (Indie Acoustic Project Awards), including the song “Love Who You Are” nominated for a 2016 Posi Award in the category “Songs for Personal Transformation”. Christie spent most of 2017 on tour in the US, Australia, and many countries around Asia. She’s now back in the studio recording new songs, intentionally crafted to weave her compositional guitar wizardry with folk-pop lyricism and ever exceeding vocal performances.

Within the plethora of talent in Philadelphia’s folk based and singer-songwriter community few can capture and share the imagination hidden within the world of finger-style guitar like David Falcone. David Falcone is a finger-style acoustic guitarist/vocalist whose influences include the styles and techniques of artists such as Kottke, Renbourn and Bensusan. His original compositions reflect a unique synthesis of Celtic, traditional, and classical sounds and forms. His vocal works are often backed with the intricate details blended from these sources of inspiration.
Falcone is also an active participant in the Music on Call program which provides music for patients in area hospitals. Find out more about him and his music at http://www.lasalle.edu/~falcone.
