Biography


A killer guitarist, a classically-trained pianist, a raw, honest
songwriter, and an incomparable singer. Christine Campbell ranges from
a raspy powerhouse to a soft...powerhouse, and brings entire audiences
to a hush...and to their feet.

Christine crossed the Northumberland Strait in 2006, and formed the
heavy-rock band Molotov Cocktail, which quickly morphed into Stone
Mary (winners of Best Loud album during the 2011 Nova Scotia Music
Week). Now, after years of thrilling the crowds with her Les Paul, she
is showing her diversity….another aspect of her musical soul.

Throughout the years, Christine has been writing songs that haven't
found a place in her hard rock outfits. These songs now have a home,
on Christine's Debut Self-Titled Solo CD, which showcases her bluesy,
country roots, and creates a more intimate, stripped down experience
for her audience. She still rips strong, intricate leads....but now
does so on an acoustic guitar. On “Christine Campbell”...the
album...she also adds a new dimension to the mix with her beautiful,
classically-trained piano playing.

With a voice often compared to Anne Wilson, Bonnie Raitt and Janis
Joplin, Christine has been garnering great reviews and press. She has
recently received standing O’s as the opener for Chantal Kreviachuk
and Lou Gramm, and at her sets at the Stan Roger’s Folk Festival and
the Dutch Mason Blues Festival. She sold out CD releases in 3 Atlantic
Provinces. Christine has also opened for Bif Naked, and has performed
onstage with Tom Wilson, Matt Anderson, Charlie A’Court, Carson Downey
and Garrett Mason. Christine’s Online ECMA profile is the top-viewed
in the past year (as of Oct 2013).

Christine has been featured in-studio with the Q104 Morning Crew (the
top rated radio morning show in Halifax), and on “Route 104”....as
well as on CKBW in Bridgewater, and XFM in Antigonish. She has been
getting lots of airplay on CBC, and has performed on CTV Morning Live
and Global TV, and APTN's Candy Show.
