Management: Brotherly Love Entertainment
At the start of her career, Christine took the East Coast by storm with thousands of listeners at Musikfest, Philadelphia AIDS Walk, Penn State Arts Fest, and New York's Central Park and followed up these performances with appearances on CN8's "Your Morning" and NBC's 10!. Today, Christine aggressively tours nationwide. Remaining a hometown favorite, she's performed sellout shows in venerable venues such as Philadelphia's The Point, Tin Angel, World Cafe Live! and has had well received performances in the Kimmel Center. Making frequent stops at showcase clubs and major outdoor festivals, Christine has established herself throughout the East coast, Midwest, and South. Gaining massive momentum, her material has garnered accomplishments such as:
The positive recognition for Christine's work doesn't stop online. She was a finalist for Philadelphia City Paper's 2002 Best Folk Artist/Group award, and received two grants in two consecutive years from The National Endowment for the Arts for its Meet the Composer series. She has opened for and shared the stages of venues and major festivals with such acts as Jeffrey Gaines, Jill Sobule, Melissa Etheridge, Janis Ian, Antigone Rising, Tempest, Grey Eye Glances, Train, Melissa Ferrick, Catie Curtis, Don McLean, Heart, Sara Lee, Vigilantes of Love, Sally Taylor, and Davy Knowles. She also composed and performed the music for the Johnny Cash Franklin Bible Session, a spoken word recording, and had the song "Sing" chosen for the GoGirls 2005 Radio Compilation CD, "Hole in the Ground" followed in 2007.
Self-taught, Havrilla wins crowds over wherever she goes with her musical innovation, heartfelt lyrics, and sparkling personality, and her guitar a mere extension of herself. Her music and sound are difficult to fit into one category; hence Christine describes it as "Neofunkadelicfolkpoptwangrock!" She lives up to the moniker bestowed upon her by Dena Marchiony of the Philadelphia Songwriters Project, "the quintessential pop-rock goddess." Philadelphia Magazine simply states, "She rocks!"
