Christine's career now spans an incredible 30 years! Over that bridge of time she has released 19 albums, a DVD celebrating 20 years in the business and a single with the BBC: the theme tune for "The Life and Loves of a She-Devil" in 1984. Throughout, she has mesmerized and astounded with her unique blend of soul, blues, pop, jazz, country and folk, and today she remains as powerful, subtle and effortless as ever.
Christine Collister grew up on the Isle of Man. Her professional recording career began in the mid 1980's but she first came to national attention singing the 1987 theme for the BBC Television series The Life and Loves Of A She Devil. Following a fruitful association with The Richard Thompson Band, Christine enjoyed a period of critical and commercial success in a seven-year partnership with Clive Gregson. She also toured and recorded with the female super group Daphne's Flight.
Christine has always enjoyed the collaborative process and has been an integral part of various musical projects over the years, harmonies a strong point in all of them. Hell Bent Heaven Bound, alongside Barb Jungr, Michael Parker and Ian Shaw in 1992 was part of "Pick of the Fringe" series at the South Bank following a great run at the Edinburgh Festival. Christine has also worked closely with Dave Kelly, acclaimed British Blues man and long standing member of the highly acclaimed Blues Band. They have enjoyed several successful tours with a full band and most recently in 2011 with a more acoustic set-up, working with long time friend and collaborator Pete Filleul. Christine's natural warmth and intimate connection with audiences coupled with her stunning voice, make her concerts delightfully memorable events.
