Happy September! I’m so excited to be back in touch with you. The last 4 months have been a whirlwind of activities filled with lots of music and a new website! Drumroll…. Leave me a comment about your favorite on the site and I will send you a special unreleased track from me. http://christinerosander.com
What I’ve been up to:
On Mother’s day I held my student recital for the first time at Steinway Piano Gallery in Beverly Hills. We played on the 600,000th Steinway made, such a stunning work of art.
Look at all of my proud students!
Summer was all about travel! We celebrated my dad’s 80th with lots of music and a family portrait that captures the inspiration behind so many of my songs. Then it was off to Nashville to work with Mary Gauthier on songwriting. A wonderful teacher and mentor, everything Mary shared resonated deeply with me and validated the path I am on. I made some amazing new friends who already feel like we’ve known each other forever, and are collaborating for some shows in LA so stay tuned!
Next, it was back up to Sacramento to shoot the video for my Kickstarter campaign. Yes, I am gearing up to record a new album! Woot woot! Here are some behind the scenes shots.
I will post more when I get back from Nashville for the Americana Music Festival, where I will continue my journey from last summer of sharing my gift with the world. A year ago, I met Joe Henry, Jamestown Revival, Cassandra Wilson, Phil Madeira and Jim Lauderdale. I wonder what this year will bring? This year, Ry Cooder and Rhiannon Giddens are on my radar 🙂 Just sayin…we never know what the future brings when we are open!
