Audio Gumshoe is privileged to present the music of Christina Custode. Familiar to long-time listeners of the show, this episode returns to an earlier format with an interview of the featured artist. It was a pleasure to speak with Christina. Opportunities such as this are few and far between, but they give us all a very intimate look at the work and personality of our featured guest.
Christina Custode is a busy musician. She performs regularly in and around her home of Niagara Falls, New York. She performs with numerous jazz groups on piano and vibraphone, is a cocktail piano soloist, and is a member of numerous blues and commercial bands.
In the interview, you will hear what inspires Christina to write her music, a bit about her stage show, and where to get her music (see links below). She shares insight to her family’s background in music, as well as her career as a music teacher. You’ll also learn about a very special tune called “The Mistletoe Song.” Christina talks about her motivation to write this great tune.
Be sure to visit Christina’s web site — and most certainly pick up a copy of the album “I” so that you can continue to enjoy her well written, well produced, collection of music.
“A little Sara Bareilles at times, some Lisa Loeb at others, even a bit of Basia at one point. Christina Custode has a little of everything for you here. Nothing & Crush are the big power ballads surrounded by pop songs like The One Thing and The LaLa Song. There’s an excellent chance her first big hit will come from this album.”
