Christensen, Janie: Painted Birds

Janie Christensen: Painted Birds
Title: Painted Birds
Label: CD Baby

With her love of language and flair for keen and sometimes quirky observation, Janie Christensen might well have become a writer of short stories, a poet or a journalist. From the beginning, it was natural for her to interpret life with words. But somewhere along the way she added music and a fine songwriter emerged. Sometimes strong, sometimes vulnerable, always human, Janie can take personal stories and make them universal or take universal themes and make them her own. Let her set the scene and draw you in to the world she has created with her music and her voice. The music in this debut collection draws from many sources of inspiration. You'll find inflections of San Francisco, where she first came onto the music scene; strong undercurrents of New York, where the vibrant energy of the city seeped into her work as a writer; and some quieter contemplation from the old farmhouse in upstate New York where she currently writes and records. Husband and co-producer Angelo Ficara adds layers of evocative sound, and whether it's with a moody string section or a perfectly placed guitar lick, he never fails to deliver an emotional punch. Together they have shaped something unique. We could go on, but the true test of music is in the listening, right? So we invite you now to listen.
